Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation to connect Palestinians in diaspora
The Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation will be hosting three exciting initiatives this summer that aim to connect Palestinians living in the diaspora with their homeland by strengthening their knowledge on Palestinian identity, history, heritage and much more.
The new initiatives include the Homecoming Journey to Palestine from July 8th-16th, as well as the 5th Annual Palestinian Diaspora Conference that will be taking place in Ramallah, Palestine from July 12th-13th and lastly the Know Thy Heritage Leadership Program from July 6th-23rd.
“This is our (the Palestinian’s) birthright journey,” Rateb Y Rabie, President/CEO of HCEF said about the initiatives. “This is an opportunity to connect with your heritage, your history, your homeland. An opportunity to gain the knowledge of not just the political but the social, cultural and economic ties to Palestine. As well as gain the skills and the experiences needed in making a difference and becoming a leader.”
Applications are submitted online and are open to youth of Palestinian descent that hold citizenship in the Americas, Australia/New Zealand and Europe. Youth applicants that live in the Middle East whom hold a visa from Israeli authorities are also considered.
