Durations of Program: 4 weeks, 3-6 months, 7-12 months, 1-2 years and over 2 years. Term: Throughout the year
Aims and Description:
The goal is to create communication and an exchange on the cultural and human level. We also want to show the Palestinian people that others from around the world are concerned about our situation and suffering under occupation.
Volunteers will be hosted with a family in the old city of Nablus. Emphasis will be placed on the hosts in the Old City in Nablus, but volunteers can also be hosted in the refugee camps. They can also move around the old city with more than family. We will arrange the living and working conditions of the volunteers so that they can maximize their experience by using their knowledge and competencies.
Basics and Money Talk:
While there is no application or program fee, volunteers will need to cover their cost of transportation to Palestine and Nablus, as well as their personal living expenses for their needs. Additionally, they should contribute a small amount to the daily needs of the host family, which would include food and any other small daily needs. In addition to contributing minimal financial support to the family during the difficult economic times, this will also enable volunteers to feel more like a part of the family, as he/she is sharing in their basic expenses. Along that line, volunteers can expect to join in food preparation and other family tasks—and will come away from the project with an increased vocabulary, new recipes, and a feeling of having really partaken in family life.
Visit Nablus Project does not take any money for personal expenses; all volunteer fees go to daily activities, lodging, and food, with a small remainder going to the running of the centre (rent, supplies).
