Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI)
Dear Ecumenical Colleagues,
Greetings in Christ from NCCI!
We are inviting applications for the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) for the year 2015. The EAPPI is an international initiative of World Council Churches (WCC) under the Palestine - Israel Ecumenical Forum (PIEF). The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) brings internationals to the West Bank to experience life under occupation. Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) provide protective presence to vulnerable communities, monitor and report human rights abuses and support Palestinians and Israelis working together for peace. EAs serve in small international teams in one location (or 'placement') living in a shared apartment with their colleagues.
More than 20 countries are sending EAs to operate in one of these 7 placements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem where they live and work alongside local people who are non-violently resisting the occupation. When they return home, EAs campaign for a just and peaceful resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through an end to the occupation, respect for international law and implementation of UN resolutions.
We are recruiting for 2 EAs from India to serve in Israel and the occupied Palestine territories (I-oPt) for 3 months in 2015 for the group of 58 (September, 2015 – December, 2015) or 59 (December, 2015 – March, 2016).
I request you to kindly give publicity to the programme among your churches/constituent bodies and encourage people to apply for the same by 25th July, 2015.
Rev. Dr. Roger Gaikwad,
General Secretary, NCCI
