My time with Go Palestine:
My name is Adam Suleman, they call it the Excellence centre and personally I could not think of a more fitting name for the centre as my experience here has been nothing short of excellent.
During my time with Go Palestine I have been shown around the different parts of Hebron such as the old town which is rich in history, I was also shown places which are of much significance to Hebron such as the Ibrahimi mosque and Shuhada Street which again both have a deep history and story behind them, and then during my final week with Go Palestine I would come in for breakfast every morning which was delicious and then go to teach English classes to children at a children’s centre in Al Arub.
During my time here I have had the opportunity to look further in to Palestinian culture, such as getting to experience the amazing food, the historical sights and the life style here in Hebron. For me above all else I was amazed by the level of respect and hospitality shown by the people of Hebron, that will definitely be the quality that sticks out the most for me during my time spent in Hebron.
There was never a time when I did not feel safe walking around Palestine, I felt safe at all times, the people that I met did more than enough to make me feel at home.
I would most definitely recommend the programmes available with Go Palestine to anybody that is interested or curious in volunteering.
