P4PD stands for Palestinians for Peace & Democracy. It was started by Mr. Mohammad Alatar in San Antonio, TX in 2001 and in the year 2004, the Houston Chapter was created after Sahar Abusada’s visit to the Holy Land; during which P4PD sponsored Arun Gandhi to visit Palestine and hold the biggest peace rally in Ramallah.
As of June 2009, P4PD moved its headquarters to Houston, TX. We are a pioneering national not-for-profit 501-C organization which provides a variety of high quality and sustainable services, for low income and economically active small scale enterprises and micro entrepreneurs, especially women. We provide such services through a high caliber staff and an advanced infrastructure to contribute in the effort of family empowerment and community development in Palestine.
