Students Here Have Good Skills and are Very Competent
My name is Ander and I am from Spain. I have enjoyed very much my stay here at An-Najah National University. It has been a really good experience to know what is happening in this part of the world and how this university works.

The feedback about the camp is very good. All the local volunteers and Zajel Program`s support helped us in all of our needs and we were informed all the time about all of the activities.
This camp gives you the chance to learn how students learn at this university and also know more about the historical, political and economic situation in Palestine. All of the activities that we have done were really interesting. We have visited a lot of cities, villages, museums and associations. We also visited Balata refugee camp and hospitals.
One of the best opportunities is to stay with local people all the time and, in my opinion, is the unique way to learn more about this country.
The university is really good and the students here have good skills and are very competent.
In Europe a lot of people speak about the political, social and economic situation here in Palestine. The point is that the information we receive from social media is not enough for knowing the real situation. most of the social media platforms support Israel’s occupation and don’t speak about how is the suffering of the Palestinian society, so I think that is important to get here to know the real situation.
I think that the two visits that impressed me more were the visit that we have done to Balata refugee camp and Hebron city. We got the chance to learn more about the situation of the refugees there. It was a really emotional and also hard experience, but it is necessary to know how the people live there.
Hebron is also impressed me a lot. I think that by visiting this city you can get a general view of what’s happening here in Palestine.
In conclusion, I have enjoyed very much my stay here in Palestine and I want to invite the people that want to learn more about this country to take part in this project, it is a good experience to learn more about the big problems that they have here.
