In may 2002, following the Israeli invasion in Nablus, a group of young paramedical workers decided to get involved with children and teenagers who had been affected by traumatic situations. The aim was to enhance the quality of their lives and bring them happiness by keeping them coping with their trauma trough resilience practices. These initiatives are, according to the Convention of the Rights of the Child; an effective war for children to claim their rights. In order to achieve these goals, the team organized regular activities for young people from Nablus and its surrounding area based on psycho educational methods. In June, 14, 2006, Human Supporters Association was officially recognized as a Nongovernmental Organization, and has continued to grow since by providing 4 types of programs : psycho-educational, educational, sportive and cultural, and the self-sustainability.
