Human Rights Volunteer Program in the West Bank: This human rights program in Palestine is knowledge based, meaning that participants will focus on building their own knowledge about human rights and its transgressions in Palestine with the help of legal experts, spreading awareness about its circumstances.
In this volunteer program, participants will work cooperatively with international organisations, law firms, and local activists on varying projects designed to help the Palestinian people. In order to accomplish this mission successfully, the Human Rights Volunteer Program in the West Bank is divided into 3 sections. The first of these being knowledge building; the second, program construction and coordination with local Palestinian actors; and third, enrolling in Arabic language course and learning about Palestinian culture and subcultures.
The first part of this program focuses on becoming informed about human rights, the Geneva convention, and how these precedences are being violated in Palestine. In order to understand these varying and complex subjects better, participants in this program will venture into Hebron, West Bank, speaking with local organizations and actors.
These include community leaders, politicians, human rights activists, business owners and employees, law teachers, university students, and non-governmental organizations. In addition, volunteers will visit the U.N.’s headquarters in Hebron, Palestine, as well as the headquarters of other activist organizations and NGOs.
Once participants have gained a sufficient understanding of the liberties guaranteed in the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Geneva Convention, and how they are being violated in Palestine they will begin the program’s second stage. Participants will take what they have learned in the previous stage and apply it to the creation of an educational workshop for local Palestinians. Participants will work with local organizations on their project, as well as utilize their own creative ingenuity when comprising workshop ideas.
The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity and vision! Previous ideas for workshops include creating documentaries and other visual media, conducting Q&As with local Palestinians, writing articles and pamphlets, as well as designing various forms of digital content. We encourage all participants to use their imagination when creating educational workshops.
