Hostel in Ramallah is more than a hostel - it is a local initiative with the objective of increase tourism in Palestine and spread the word about what is happenning in West Bank. Volunteering with them was one of the best experiences I ever had. The staff is kind and helpful and instalations are nice and clean. They run an organic farm too, which is a way of resistance and protection of Palestine's land. Most of my time I worked with social media and photography, trying to increase the number of guests. I strongly reccomend Hostel in Ramallah and can't wait to be back there.

Fundador do Trip Voluntária e autor do livro "Africanamente: o que vivi e aprendi como voluntário na África". O propósito de vida? Incentivar o intercâmbio de voluntariado como forma de promover tolerância, respeito e autoconhecimento. Encurtar distâncias, aproximar pessoas e celebrar encontros. Mergulhar em outras culturas e superar as fronteiras do desconhecido. Quebrar estereótipos para construir um mundo mais humano. Aqui, diferenças fazem a diferença.
