If you are looking for a volunteer placement in Bethlehem, you can come and work with us.
We do have some compulsory ability requirements but know that you all come with your own skills and knowledge base that could help us.
Volunteers have been working with the Bethlehem Fair Trade Artisans for years and have always left with a sense of achievement having helped the carvers and economy in Bethlehem and with a new found knowledge of the area and situation in the West Bank.
We can offer a varied placement which includes office works, meeting the carvers and understanding the basics of how our organization works. We can also put you in touch with other organizations if you wish to see the surrounding areas or cities. You could be olive picking, visiting the refugee camps and gain knowledge of the culture and tradition of the Palestinian people.
