International Women’s Peace Service – Palestine
The International Women’s Peace Service-Palestine is currently recruiting volunteers:
The International Women’s Peace Service (IWPS) is a small team of international female human-rights activists in Palestine.
* provide accompaniment to Palestinian civilians (including farmers during the olive harvest), document and non-violently intervene in human-rights abuses
* support Palestinians in their non-violent resistance to end the Israeli military occupation and construction of the barrier throughout the West Bank.
IWPS is run entirely by volunteers, and is committed to peace and justice.
IWPS is currently inviting applications from women who would like to join our team.
Successful applicants will be invited to our 6 day training being held in Portugal in September 2012. You will be expected to serve 1-3 months in the West Bank, as well as supporting our work outside of Palestine. Applicants should be able to commit to further terms of 1-3 months in Palestine. The training will be provided by experienced IWPS volunteers, who freely give their time.
Short term volunteers, who commit to a single, one month term are also welcome to apply.
Please apply as soon as possible to be considered for the next training, as places are limited.
