Type of Work: Training and event management - - Through international solidarity work and skill sharing, it is possible to help empower young Palestinians to create a better reality for themselves.

Here is an outline of the workshops comprising this section of the camp, you can select the topic you prefer. (Optional).

Study Theme: The Program’s primary objective is to provide a common ground for education and enlightenment through a set of topics that cover major aspects of the Palestinian cause and its people. The Program also seeks to provide a space to share knowledge and expertise between international and local students. The Program will provide a suitable venue to foster the exchange of ideas and cultures, as well as, to bridge the gap of misunderstanding and misconception. The daily voluntary work is not a must. The workshops focus on capacity building. However, if your first language is not English, you can sup

Accommodation: Zajel will be responsible for providing suitable accommodation for the participants at special apartment-dorms outside the campus: the Program will be in charge of the transportation to and from the apartments.
