Educational Program

All of our programs are tailor-made to cater to the specific needs and requests of each academic institute and to complement the students’ coursework.

We provide visitors, from all around the world, the chance to discover Palestine, attend and participate in discussions from both Palestinian and Israeli ngos, to get a more comprehensive understanding of the issues on the ground, walk through history, witness the world’s three religions coexist in the same space, experience authentic traditional Palestinian food and delicious sweets. In addition, we provide great opportunities for visitors to develop intercultural relations and build lifelong friendships with Palestinians.

We are here to organize your tour, and make your students’ visit to Palestine a once in a life time experience.
