For those who wish to visit Palestine, staying with a Palestinian family is a unique way to discover the culture and the people. Some of us who participate in the project can host you in our homes in Aida Camp for as long as you need. You will have a great opportunity to know how is life in a refugee camp at the same time you support our families!Graffiti at Aida Camp.
We are always pleased to welcome new guests into our homes, and look forward to the opportunity of giving you a taste of the famous Arab hospitality. While staying with us, you will be one of the family, making new friends, tasting authentic Palestinian cuisine, and hopefully, learning some Arabic along the way. Home stays provide significant support to Noor Women’s Empowerment Group and our families.

We will then look for a family in Aida Camp that can host you during your stay.
You will have your own bedroom, but will share the bathroom either with other guests or, depending on where you stay, with your host family.
The day of your arrival, we will pick you up in front of the Intercontinental Hotel in Bethlehem and take you by foot to your host family in Aida Camp (about a 10 minute walk).
Before your arrival we will send you some information on Aida Camp. During your stay, you will be assisted by Islam, the Project’s Coordinator. She will give you information about the culture, the country, the refugees… and assist you in anything you need.
