YMCA-YWCA Witness Visit

A program in Palestine and Israel organized by the Joint Advocacy Initiative of the East Jerusalem YMCA and YWCA of Palestine, where they invite international YMCA and YWCA national and local General Secretaries, board members, executive directors and senior staff to take part.

The purpose of the Witness Visit is for participants to learn about the Palestinians' situation, meet with representatives of government, churches and civil society organizations and find ways in which the YMCA and YWCA movements can act for a just peace.

Further objective is to get to know the work of the YWCA of Palestine and East Jerusalem YMCA and discuss possible partnering projects.

A goal of the visit is also to live and experience the social life and culture of the Holy Land
