Ahdaf is unique: no other organisation that works with youth in Palestine operates in the way Ahdaf does, and its structure ensures that the students are at the heart of its development. Students and alumni are members of Ahdaf and contribute their energy and direction to help us shape what we do. We are keen to share our own experiences and ideas with others, helping us all to develop and grow, and to improve the work that we’re doing.
We hope joining the network will offer us a number of benefits, including the potential to offer our students access to other opportunities to help support their work in Palestine, improving our own networking opportunities, linking us with other organisations working in areas of youth empowerment and community development, and increasing opportunities to learn from others to broaden our knowledge, skills and understanding.
