Fundraiser for my trip to Palestine
Organized by: Ashley C
In September this year, I will be travelling to Bethlehem, Palestine to participate in an internship with an organization working on projects for sustainable development in multiple dimensions of Palestinian life, including, but not limited to: resource management, water treatment, agriculture, and strengthening civil society. My internship will last for at least 6 months and will consist of both research in the city of Bethlehem and field work with communities throughout the West Bank.
For those of you who know me or have followed my work, I have several years of experience working with community development in rural regions of Tanzania, including two years of field work. I am very excited to apply my knowledge of community development into the context of Palestine. Not only will this internship provide valuable opportunities for my professional life, it will also be a transformative experience for my personal growth.
At this point, I have been offered free accomodation in a guesthouse in a village outside of Bethlehem and a small stipend to cover food during the internship. But I still need to raise money for the travel costs and other expenses.
I need all the assistance I can get so even a small donation will be very appreciated.
Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
