Quote from previous intern:
"Interning with Baladna was a great chance to gain real experience and practical skills with a Palestinian NGO. From the first day I was made to feel part of the team, working with colleagues to make a real difference on the ground. Haifa is a unique city with a vibrant civil society, and a perfect place to get a deeper insight into the full range of issues affecting Palestinians this side of the Green Line." Gareth
