Program Details

To have international volunteers here, is a help on his own: for the children of the camp, who almost never left their hometown, it's a joy to meet new foreign people. It gives them a special memory in their life that they will not forget.

You can give workshops from different kinds such as contemporary dance, fitness exercises, yoga, ballet, a traditional dance from your country,... All ideas are welcome!

If you know how to play a music instrument, you can contribute at the training and festivals. Bringing the youngsters in touch with music is from great importance and a stimulation for them to get activated, giving opportunities to the children to develop their skills and seeking their future through music.


Activities & Shift

Feel free to bring games with you - for example UNO, RISK, TWISTER, cricket, youth-organisation-games to play outside,...: these are very new concepts for the children which will bring joy in their everyday life.

The same if you know about creative crafts: share it with the children. As well as get the skills and creativity out of them: some of them know how to make traditional handwork, how to draw,... It would be beautiful to give them the chance to share it with the group in a workshop, organised by you and us. These are ways to strengthen their self-confidence, which is needed here.

You can help with English classes especially in conversation: speaking English with children, women, adolescents,... is from great value since people don't get often the chance to practice their learned English with a non-Palestinian.
