Description: An-Najah National University in Nablus-Palestine is pleased to announce an International Camp Program for 2019. Facilitated by Zajel Youth Exchange Program of the Public Relations Department that will host a two weeks long voluntary project. Zajel Program kindly invites people from across the world to explore this opportunity and to engage culturally and socially with people of Palestine.
Zajel is the Arabic word for a carrier pigeon: a symbol of communication and a symbol of peace. The Zajel Program offers a peaceful way by which Palestinian youth can be part of their cause. We seek to answer the misunderstanding and unawareness of people in the West, by representing Palestinian youth in a positive way and by acting as ambassadors for the Palestinian cause.
Type of Work: Through international solidarity work and skill sharing, it is possible to help empower young Palestinians to create a better reality for themselves by giving them some training workshops in different fields.. We try to provide as many positive options as we can, recognizing that many international volunteers have good qualifications and skills to share with our local students, (which is not a must) as well as, a willingness to provide assistance. Here is some titles of the training workshops comprising this section of the camp, you can select the topic you prefer. (Optional).
