Faculty and Students for Israeli-Palestinian Peace-International, FFIPP-I, is now accepting applications for its summer educational delegation to the Gaza Strip, Palestine. This unique program offers an intimate, intensive, and experiential education on the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and its people’s struggle for freedom and justice.
The delegation consists of 9 busy days of traveling around Gaza and meeting with leaders from grassroots organizations, research centers, and human rights organizations. Meetings may include the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme, the Palestinian Non-Governmental Organizations Network, the Palestinian Medical Relief Society, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights, Al-Mezan Center for Human Rights, the YMCA, the Bader Society for Community Development, the Women’s Affairs Center, and faculty and students from Islamic University of Gaza, Al-Azhar University – Gaza, Al-Quds Open University and University College of Applied Sciences
Due to the constantly changing and, at times, risky conditions in Gaza, only applicants with demonstrated maturity, flexibility, high motivation, and understanding of the situation in Gaza will be considered.
