Wonderful experience

I had a wonderful experience with Volunteer Palestine in Bethlehem. Thanks to their great work I've got to see and learn a lot about the situation in Palestine. From the volunteer work to the political tours to the 'fun tours', everything was well organized and I would definitely recommend the organization to a friend.

Thanks a lot, Ester

Excellent volunteer experience in Bethlehem

I want to come to the West Bank to understand more about Palestinian history and culture, and the Palestinian perspective on the political situation. The program administration was excellent - I had clear communication about logistics and safety before coming to Bethlehem and had a lot of support and guidance from the Volunteer Palestine team. I was placed with an excellent news organization where my skills as a filmmaker were put to good use. The tours and excursions were all well planned, thoughtful and politically sensitive. I learned a lot about the situation on the ground in Palestine and made a ton of a wonderful international and local friends. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to spend time in Palestine in a way that is politically aware and respectful of the local community.

Volunteering and coming back

I had a great time with Volunteer Palestine both times I've been there. I'm so glad I got to know all of you and I'll definitely recommend to programme to a friend. However the actual work I did the first time I was there, was a bit unstructured. I didn't really feel like my help was actually needed.

But still, thanks for 2 good stays and tell Mohammad I'm sorry I didn't get to day goodbye.

A life changing experience

I had an amazing time volunteering with Defense for Children International through Volunteer Palestine's volunteer placement program, and had the chance to do everything from conduct field interviews to visit a Palestinian juvenile court hearing. Volunteer Palestine has provided me with a life changing experience so I can now better understand the way Palestinians lead their daily lives under the occupation. Through volunteering, you truly feel as though you are helping make a tangible difference in their community, and you get to meet so many people with inspiring stories along the way!
