I am in the bus, on my way to Washington DC from New York. I will have the training session before the other peace fellows since I have booked my ticket to Palestine in advance and I could not change it.
I am really looking forward to working as a peace fellow at Democracy and Workers’ right Center in Ramallah-Palestine. I have several projects in mind that I will discuss with my host in the upcoming days. I am very interested to learn more about Palestinian workers with disabilities, meet their families and see how they pay for their living. In addition, I would like to focus my research on children, especially those who sell at checkpoints.
Although I am Palestinian and I have read a lot about the conditions of work in Palestine and in Israel, I am confident that I will learn a lot from this fellowship, since I have never been in touch with these workers directly. I am also looking forward to doing my best in supporting Palestinian workers and advocating for their human rights.
