Hands Up initiative for children of Gaza in the spotlight

In its annual joint event with the local interfaith forum, Hastings Against War presents a talk on the Hands Up project which puts Palestinian children in the blockaded city of Gaza in touch with their peers around the world. John Enefer explains.

Hands Up project puts young Palestinians in touch with the outside world

Educational opportunities for young Palestinians are limited, with school resources scarce and drastic restrictions imposed on their society as a whole. But thanks to modern communications, the enterprise of volunteers and their own willing efforts, Palestinian schoolchildren now enjoy a creative interchange with young people around the world, allowing both sides to gain important insights into each others’ lives. Hastings-based teacher Adrian Underhill explains how the Hands Up project came about and its transformative effects on the lives of young Palestinians.
