Description

*THIS IS NOT VIRTUAL - INTERNSHIP WILL TAKE PLACE IN HEBRON, PALESTINE

Ten years ago, the Old City of Hebron was regarded as the poorest part of town. It suffered from social and economic problems. A third of its buildings were desolate, abandoned or crumbling. Infrastructure was lacking. Israeli soldiers and settlers harassed the occupants. Closures, curfews and shortages caused residents to leave, bringing commerce almost to a halt.

In the face of this discouragement a Presidential Decree was issued by the late President Yasser Arafat on August 12, 1996, ordering the creation of Hebron Rehabilitation Committee with members from the district's institutions and establishments. This initiative acknowledged Hebron's religious and cultural status. It recognized the determination of the people of Hebron, their institutions – municipal, communal and academic – and the Palestinian leadership, to cherish the cultural heritage of the city and to protect it.

HRC is leading the way for development in the Old City of Hebron. Currently HRC is looking for interns/volunteers to assist in the field of development projects. The following are the requirements and duties:
