The Palestinian Farmers' Union (PFU) is a non-governmental organization that provides technical and organizational support to Palestinian farmers. The PFU's focus is to represent the interests of Palestinian farmers in order to empower them to secure and protect their rights.

2. Encourage responsible investment and social responsibility.
3. Support branch level development projects.
The PFU aims to be responsive and reflective of Palestinian farmers' needs.
