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.

The Canadian-Palestinian Educational Exchange (CEPAL), which sends volunteers to teach language classes to Palestinian children and youth in Lebanon, is looking for volunteers for its Fall 2011 programme.
