This Christmas we want to give practical support to those working for peace in Gaza and the West Bank. We want to invest in the young people of Gaza by funding courses in graphic design and metalwork and by supporting their mental well being. We want to back those who put themselves on the line to rebuild family homes demolished on the West Bank.
If you want to be a peace builder, a peace constructor, get up and
do something, don’t be a peace contemplator, a peace talker.”
Our Christmas appeal this year is for the peace builders of Palestine, for our partners NECC in Gaza and Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem. For the hope they bring through their vocational training for young people in Gaza and by rebuilding homes destroyed by the Israeli military on the West Bank.

NECC Training Centre in Gaza City offers psychosocial support and vocational training to the young people of Gaza — the innocent victims of three wars since 2009 – giving them an irresistible hope for the future. NECC, Gaza (Near East Council of Churches), is engaged in humanitarian work to support Palestinian refugees in Gaza, particularly disadvantaged youth, women and other vulnerable groups.
Specialist mentoring and psychological support are given to all students, which are essential to help them not only to complete and succeed in their training courses, but also to develop as individuals and cope with the isolation of everyday life in Gaza.
Holy Land Trust
Holy Land Trust’s community outreach team works tirelessly to strengthen communities and help local people unite in acts of non-violent resistance against the occupation.
They enable creative programmes and projects — both locally and globally — that foster understanding, healing and empowerment of individuals and communities affected by the Israeli occupation.

We work alongside grass-roots partners in Palestine, South Africa, Nicaragua, Burundi, India and Tanzania.
Reaching children on the streets, addressing their trauma, working with them and their families to reintegrate them into their homes, to realise their rights and recover their future.
Working with local and international peace activists, and partnering with grass-roots projects, to call for a just peace, reconciliation and full equal rights for all Palestinians and Israelis.
Addressing the impact of climate change and the causes of extreme poverty, building sustainable rural communities and empowering them to realise their rights.
Bringing people together to meet our partners from around the world, visiting the communities they work in and seeing their projects in action — building solidarity and lasting friendships.
At the core of Amos Trust’s work are the individuals who support us. Our work is made possible by you. Large or small, your donation makes a real difference.
