The trips of Ontmoet Palestina are part of Stichting Het Andere Perspectief.
vision and mission
With Ontmoet Palestina we bring small groups of people in touch with people in Palestine and Israel. Our experience is that our trips stimulate critical thinking, can change perspectives and can activate people. The idea is simple: talking with everyone to be able to discover for yourself how the situation is. We also notice that our presence is a positive stimulus for our Israeli and Palestinian friends. The Palestinians and Israelis live literally side by side, but they almost never speak to each other. People who live apart from each other in extreme circumstances, lose all nuance and especially empathy for each other. It is important to always approach people on a personal level. This idea is the origin of our foundation. This is the story that we want to tell, for example by travelling to this region. We want to inspire people to look at things differently and to approach problems on a human level. Together, we want to inspire to break through mental and physical walls between people. The organization now consists of a group of seven enthusiastic people.
