Friends of the Arava Institute
October 28, 2009
I am a Palestine from Bethlehem city, and I live in the middle of the long conflict between Jews and Arabs. In February, 2008 I completed my studies at the Arava Institute (AIES), and I started the joint Master program between AIES and Ben-Gurion University. This unique institute, provide the students – Jews and Arabs- a peaceful environment, equal opportunities, and amazing tools and knowledge to understand the narrative of the other side, the need for a secure home, rights of existence and ways of cooperation to survive in this small land. It also provides us with good knowledge and methods of how we should cooperate to protect our shared environments, and a better chance for good education.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
being a student with other Jews, Arabs, and international students, living with them,experiencing different cultures.

bring more students, creating new facilities and doing more joint projects.
