The Caritas Volunteers programme started in 2005 with the objective of preparing young people to play an active role in an independent and democratic Palestine. We encourage the youth to become leaders of their community, driven by the spirit of social justice and tolerance. We also give them tools for succeeding in their professional life in a difficult economic environment.
Caritas is present in 10 parishes around Ramallah and Bethlehem and in schools in Ramallah, Taybeh and Birzeit. Our volunteers are between 18 and 30 years old, while the Friends of Caritas members are 15 to 18 years old.
