How coding is helping young Gazans find work

Many young Gazans are university graduates, and yet they face dire work prospects.

Over a decade ago, a blockade of the Gaza Strip by Israel and Egypt was tightened, when the militant group, Hamas, took full control.

But Palestinians are now finding freelance work with companies in the UK and the US.

Gaza Sky Geeks, a tech hub started by Google and the NGO, Mercy Corps, teaches coding and has an outsourcing agency.
