World Week for Peace in Palestine and Israel (WWPPI)

The 2018 World Week for Peace  16 – 23 September

Investing in young  people 

A week of education, prayer and action for peace in Palestine &  Israel, initiated by the World Council of Churches. Planned events below

This year’s theme is “Youth and Children: Raising Hope and Making Change”. Youth and children are the ones who suffer the most in conflicts and under occupation. They are also the ones who will hold the future of Palestine and Israel in their hands, the ones we pray will grow up with peace and prosperity.
