  • Description


    Hello everyone !

    We are a Bedouin community located in Palestine, at the east of Jerusalem (30 minutes with the car) between Maale Adumim settlement and the town of Al Eizariya.
    We are composed of 57 family, nearly 300 people mostly children. The life of the residents of the community depends on livestock and agriculture and we have our own customs and traditions. In our every day live, we have to face with the occupation because the Israelis want our land in order to extend the settlement near by. Many homes of the community have already been destroyed as our first kindergarten that we rebuilt.
    But we will never give up our land and we will continue to live here no matter what!

    And now, we need you to improve the life of the inhabitants of the community !

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    By coming here, we are sure that you will learn a lot !

    You will have the opportunity to discover an other culture; different than yours; the Bedouin and Palestinian culture, and you will be able to experience our way of life (sleeping in a Bedouin tent, eating and preparing traditional Bedouin food, milking goats, horseback riding, sewing traditional Bedouin clothes and discovering our music). And of course, we can teach you Arabic if you like!

    Besides, you will be the witnesses of our live under occupation and colonization. You will be able to see for yourself what is really going on here (no longer through more or less reliable media) and to make your own opinion on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. No worries, it's safe here for you !
    And if you want to travel in the country, we can bring you to some places and show you around.

    We need volunteers to help us with the children and the women, the tourists and to improve our land!

    The children : teaching languages (any language you speak), prepare some activities with and for them (sport, painting, drawing, music, cinema, drama, ...); teaching them how to play a musical instrument, organize sport training (boxing, self-defense, foot, basket, yoga...). If you a skill in something; you can teach them!
    The goal is not make the children happy, to open their mind to the world by discovering new things and preparing them to face the life.

    The women : in a project of the empowerment of women; we need volunteers to teach them languages (any language you speak but English in preference), help them to sew Bedouin traditional clothes and accessories, speak with them about your country, your culture or anything you would like to share.

    The tourists : welcoming the tourists when they come to visit us (check in, check out). Help to clean the tent, bathroom and toilets when they leave.
