Three young Palestinians, each carrying a different history, a different identity card from a different landscape--but from the same land--met for the first time thanks to the AFSC’s Palestine Youth Together for Change Project (PYTC). Each of them carries the burden of living under occupation, and each wants to be liberated in body and spirit.
“At first I was afraid to go out and meet with others, but afterwards I started to learn more about the Popular Achievement Program. Through the program I was introduced to new people. [The program] provides youth with an opportunity to get involved with society and become community organizers and leaders.”
