In April 2001, the first Qassam rocket was fired from Gaza into Israel. After 15 years, 7 military operations, 280 causalities and 13,000 rockets – the solution is nowhere in sight. The difficult years continue to undermine the education systems, the economy and the growth potential of the Gaza Envelope communities.
Despite and perhaps because of the challenging situation, the Gaza envelope region is developing. The population is growing, schools and the college is growing, leading educational programs are developed, the real estate market is growing and companies that settle in the region lead to business prosperity. The state of mind of the population is strong, energetic, entrepreneurial and committed.
With these values in mind, we have established SouthUp.
