VOLUNTEERING WORK CAMP - FURUSH BEIT DAJAN
This is the big YDA project for the next coming months! We are organising an amazing fun volunteer work camp in the Jordan Valley, that besides the agricultural and social work, wil include a 3 day tour around the West Bank hotspots!
More information HERE!
and on our Facebook event HERE!
MotherLand WorkCamp was thought in order to provide you a very complete palestinian experience. We want you to feel useful and do real needed work but, on the other hand, it is also very important to us that you get to know our occupied territory and our side of the 100 years old conflict. For that reason, we suggest you work 5 days (3 of farming and 2 of social work with children) in the amazing Jordan Valley, and 2 other days to tour around the West Bank and Jerusalem. We will spend some nights together and some nights with local families, because we believe a strong cultural experience will improve your time here.
TYPE OF WORK
The work is going to be exciting! In the Jordan Valley village where the camp is going to happen, there is a piece of land that was previously threatened by the jewish settlers living near by, so the people planted over 100 olive trees so that they cannot take over the land. The mission was successful and now we need your help to improve the conditions of the field: we need irrigation, we need a fence, we need hands!
After 3 days helping the local farmers, we want you to share some experiences with the local children. So we arranged some activities in the local school to give them an unique experience! And because we really want you to be busy, most days we will finish with some recreative adventurous activities to explore the area!
The accommodation will be in a local community room, a night during the tour with a local family - so that you can have a cultural experience - and a last night in a rooftop hostel in Jerusalem.
Regarding meals, they will be prepared by a local family that will deliver it to us in the camp and in local restaurants and families while we are touring.
