The paper aims to analyse the well-being of feminine caregivers in Palestine. In order to do that it explores the outcomes of the preliminary step of the Emancipatory Research (ER) carried out in the “PARTICIP-ACTION” Project (financed by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation – Ministry of Foreign and International Cooperation, promoted and carried out by EducAid – Inclusive Education and Social Innovation for International Cooperation). The ER is a bottom-up process that promotes a progressive involvement of vulnerable groups of people as researchers at first hand. In case herein considered, the researchers are 30 feminine caregivers of relatives with disability. Starting from their own point of view and their own personal experience, they first selected and then investigated a few dimensions of well-being deemed essential for them to reach a good quality of life.
