Jericho Study Tour & Volunteer Camp 1

Jericho, Palestinian Territory

30 Mar 2019 - 13 Apr 2019

Aqabat Jaber Refugee Camp is desperately in need of resources and hope. By embedding a group volunteers who will spend their time on useful projects with local organisations, we may be able to bring a little light into the lives of camp residents, and let them know that there are people who care. The camp will be structured to enable daily interaction between participants and local residents. 

Up to thirty participants will spend half their time on volunteer work, and half the time touring and participating in meetings and discussions with Palestinians and Israelis, cityfolk, villagers, settlers, experts and activists.

Day trips to many parts of the country will meet with experts, activists, peacemakers, NGOs and politicians, in order to deepen the knowledge and understanding of the Camp participants.

Combatants for Peace co-founder, Itamar Shapira, will take the lead in managing the camp and touring with the participants. His expertise and analysis of the situation on the ground will help make this a life-changing experience for the Campers.

A unique opportunity to volunteer at a refugee camp in Jericho where it is needed. Half the time will be spent in volunteer work in Aqabat Jabr Refugee Camp, and half the time touring and participating in meetings and discussions with Palestinians and Israelis, cityfolk, villagers, settlers, experts and activists. This intensive camp is designed to bring solidarity and hope to some of the most neglected and oppressed communities in Israel/Palestine, and help the participants become agents for change through building knowledge, developing strategies and motivation.
