World Student Christian Federation (WSCF) - ME

WSCF ME LogoTHE WORLD STUDENT CHRISTIAN FEDERATION (WSCF) is a place of meeting and dialogue for young Christians from all different backgrounds, churches and denominations.

In the Middle East, WSCF has been active since the 1960s. Despite the conflict and turmoil of the last decades, WSCF-ME has continued to thrive and grow in its ministry to students in the Arab world, and have spoken out for unity, peace and justice. WSCF-ME assert its identity as Arab Christians.

The JAI worked on creating a WSCF youth group, while we work in coordinating their work and local activities, regional and international participations, and promoting the group for further Palestinian participants. The JAI trains and works with the group on advocating for their Palestinian cause from a Christian perspective and addressing regional and international students.
