An unforgettable experience which I don’t know how to describe, just amazing.
This trip in Palestine changed my life entirely in a really positive way. It opened my mind and I crossed (mental) boundaries. We, the international and local volunteers, created new workshops and learnt from each other. And during all this time I was meeting new, really kind people from other cultures. After this trip they became friends and some of them became like a part of my family.
I felt so comfortable and cared for, even in the moments when I could feel lost or shocked, they were there to accompany me, showing me their own country, traditions and history in the most generous and special way.
I had a great time in Palestine and for sure I hope to come back one day, inshallah!
I recommend every person to join this exchange program. They will learn a lot and will grow even more every day, breaking prejudices they could maybe have. And they will also become more aware of what’s going on here and in other parts of the world.
Just stay curious and keep learning and discovering.
