Social Worker, South Hebron Hills
I have been a community volunteer in the southern Hebron Hills since 1998
and an advocate for women. After visiting the U.S. Congress on International Peace Day in 2015, I joined Rebuilding Alliance to bring a project called 'Pinwheels for Peace' to the Palestinian communities here in the hills south of Hebron. As I began work on this, I noticed how this simple project provides an opening to understand the needs of the children and often a smile on the faces of our children.
There is so much need here and so much trauma too – I am currently the only social worker in the area. I provide weekly counseling and guidance sessions to the students at schools in five small villages here, and also work with their mothers. I am also the founder and Executive Director of the Rural Women's Association of the South Hebron Hills.
