Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to spread the culture of peace, interfaith and non-violence in the world and creating a bridge between Muslims and Christians in Palestine.

Volunteering for Peace is a Palestinian non-governmental organization which aim to participate in establishing a bridge between the different faith groups in Palestine. We are active in the field of non-violence and peace building. We organize different workshops, training programs and exchanges in topics related to interfaith, non-violence, peace building, conflict resolution, intercultural learning and other topics. We hosted The Volunteering for Peace Exchange Program Sharing Perspective II in Hebron, Palestine which is an exchange for 20 Dutch students and 20 Palestinian students to share ideas about culture and faith. Also in January 2010, we organized a conference on the topic of "Towards an Interfaith Media Culture, Amman Jordan, to introduce the culture of interfaith in media. There were 25 participants from MENA region CCs. To learn more about our CC, please visit http://vfpeace.blogspot.com/

We dream of going beyond borders, breaking the ice between the people of different faiths and reaching a point of friendship and full respect.
