CEPAL—the Canadian Palestinian Educational Exchange—has just published their Winter 2012 newsletter, with information on their continuing volunteer program. CEPAL works to assist Palestinian refugees in Lebanon by:
- Providing English language training in refugee camps to help Palestinian children and youth pass elementary and secondary school requirements
- Promoting a love of learning and confidence among Palestinian children and youth through active learning
- Creating opportunities for Canadians to learn more about the plight of refugees in Lebanon through awareness raising activities in Canada
You’ll find the newsletter here. I know a number of students who have participated in the CEPAL volunteer program over the years, and they have all found it deeply rewarding.
