This new women-only tour led by Amos Chair of Trustees Jenny Baker and Bethlehemite and activist Lucy Thalgieh will give a unique chance to understand more about issues facing women in Jerusalem and on the West Bank and how we can stand in solidarity with them.

This 8-day (7-night) trip will be based in Bethlehem and Ramallah where you will:

  • meet and spend time with women activists
  • visit women-run programmes on the West Bank and Jerusalem
  • see how projects are using the arts and sports to promote girls and women’s rights
  • understand the impact of the illegal Israeli Occupation on women’s lives
  • visit women in their homes and enjoy Palestinian hospitality
  • visit women whose homes have been destroyed and hear about the impact upon them and their families
  • hear about the issues within Palestinian society that women are challenging and how they stand up to the Occupation
  • enjoy some great company, laugh lots and be inspired by the people you meet.

You will stay in the Alrowwad Cultural Centre’s new accommodation block in Aida refugee camp for four nights, one night will be a home-stay, and two nights will be in a hotel in Ramallah.

Lucy Thalgieh is the lead worker for Amos Trust’s partner Wi’am Reconciliation Centre’s women work. She is a local councillor, one of the authors of Kairos Palestine, played for the Palestine Netball team and has spoken around the world on women’s rights and the impact of the Occupation.

Jenny Baker is the Chair of Amos Trust. She is Chief Operating Officer for Redthread — a charity that seeks to offer young people vital support through health and education programmes. She's an author and marathon runner who has led many trips to the West Bank and has spent many years promoting women’s leadership.
