Volunteer with Karama

Make a difference through volunteering
Volunteers in Palestine

Together we create opportunities for refugees

Give, and receive even more.

Join us in Palestine for a life-changing experience!

 

Karama Organization has always highly valued volunteerism and from our first year of activities, we welcomed international guests in our community. You are welcome to share your skills, experience, talents and ideas with our organization and participants… and receive back a lot more!

Contribute to our community

Expand you world

Volunteering is an amazing opportunity to get to know Palestine and gain a deep understanding of life in a refugee camp on the West Bank. It gives you a valuable change to contribute to the operations of a non-governmental organization, while travelling an unique region. 

 

There are many areas volunteers can contribute to and depending on your interests and skills we can together design a program that fits you!

 

Volunteers are hosted by the organization in the camp, and tours, excursion and Arabic language classes can be all part of the program.

Words From Volunteers

  • “My volunteering with Karama was amazing because it allowed me to go beyond the stereotypical views on Palestinians and really get to know them – their hopes, their dreams, their fears, and … their amazing warm and passionate character!

    Concerning my work, I organized a photography workshop with the children and luckily there was also time just to sit down and talk to the children, it is a very rewarding experience!“

    Kevin
  • “After reading a lot about Palestine and the conflict, I wanted to go there myself to discover Palestinian life and to learn more about the situation. I choose Karama because of the philosophy on their website appealed to me (and the fact that it is a small-scale Palestinian NGO created by refugees – and not a big foreign-controlled INGO). Karama found me the most wonderful host family in Deheishe, they made my stay there incredibly unique and special, I will never forget them. In the first month of my stay at Karama, I did Spanish courses with a group of 9 to 10 teenagers and all sorts of games, handicrafts, and sports activities with both the younger and older children at Karama. That I really liked, because, in this way, I got to know all the children and create beautiful friendships with some of them.”

  • “Personally, it was a very strong and intense experience, through which I learned many things about myself as well as Palestine and the refugees. Professionally, the experience was definitely very useful, as I work in the development field, but for me, the personal experience was much much more important!”
