If you have ever felt hopeless about the Israel-Palestine situation believing it only to be a ‘Muslim problem’ then think again. EAPPI, the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel takes a very active interest in promoting peace and justice in the region. A non-religious organisation, it regularly recruits volunteers to travel to the West Bank, witness events first hand, monitor human rights violations and upon return campaign for a just and peaceful resolution to the conflict. Once back, volunteers commit themselves to giving 10 presentations each, largely to western audiences. These raise awareness of the conflict and offer practical steps towards media and government engagement. Originally created in response to cries for help from Christian Palestinians, EAPPI has been active since 2002.
