Story

Dar Assadaqa's 'Beyond the Checkpoints' project will take young Palestinians out of their own area to learn more about their country

Young Palestinians like the adults around them live under tremendous pressure from the Israeli occupation that dominates every aspect of their lives. They are forced to grow up aware of the military pressure and apartheid that subjects them and their families to inequality and danger at many stages of their lives, to tear-gas, the sound of bullets, to checkpoints, the Apartheid Wall, people losing their land to Israeli settlements and to human rights violations at every turn.

CADFA regularly takes foreign visitors to Palestine where they can travel to villages, towns and refugee camps across the country. It is a bitter contrast with the situation for young Palestinians - the Israeli occupation puts so many obstacles in their way - checkpoints, the Israeli Apartheid Wall, the ID system, the Israeli military and the very real threat of military violence - so many have not travelled far across their country.

In 2022 we supported our partner Dar Assadaqa in Palestine to develop the Beyond the Checkpoints project which takes young people from several different towns and villages to learn how to organise a human rights fact-finding visit to their own home area, and to travel across the West Bank to meet the other young people and to see and learn about places they had not visited before.

This was such a success that we want to run it again with more young people - boys and girls - and are asking for your help.as we have no other funding. This time Beyond the Checkpoints will take place before our annual youth visit to the UK in order to give the participants more help before they come to the UK.

Following the visits to each others' towns and villages, they will join with young people from the UK on Zoom and give presentations about all of the places. Then (subject to fundraising) some of them will be given the opportunity to come to the UK on a CADFA youth visit to tell the stories of their lives to schools, colleges, youth clubs, community groups.

This was such a great project - I went to many new places, enjoyed it and learned so much.Thank you so much to all of you for helping it to happen
