Volunteering at this place was an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone looking to travel in Palestine. It was my first experience with a workaway host and surpassed my expectations! While there I was able to develop language teaching skills while also learning Arabic and experiencing local culture. Everyone at the place was extremely welcoming and helpful. Both the students and staff were very kind and patient with me. The hours were reasonable. I was given more Arabic tutoring than I expected and had tons of free time to hang out with locals and travel. I made some very close friends and felt like the people there really wanted to connect with the volunteers.
Accommodation was great. The apartment is huge. The wifi was good. I really enjoyed living downtown and experiencing the old city of Nablus on a daily basis. There are markets, restaurants, places to hang out, and bus stops close by. I was able to explore a lot of the country and never had a hard time getting somewhere. There isn't a ton of guidance online regarding travel in the West Bank but the people there were always helpful when I wasn't sure about something.
I strongly recommend this host! Everything was handled very professionally. I would be happy to work with them again.
Thank you to Mrs. Louha, and everyone else there that has helped to build such an amazing opportunity to volunteer in Nablus, Palestine!
