APIRG Working Group, Palestine Solidarity Network is pleased to be hosting a trio of citizens whose recent volunteer experiences demonstrate how local individuals can make a significant contribution to refugee students’ education abroad.  Zaid Meqdadi is a 4th-year student in Edmonton, who spent his summer teaching middle schoolers at Rashidieh camp in south Lebanon. Nathan Deisman is a board member of Edmonton’s HumanServe International. HSI’s local fundraising supports a tutoring project and kindergarten program for refugees / displaced children at displaced persons’ gatherings in Lebanon. John Doyle, a former UofA programs director, will describe how CEPAL (Canadian Palestinian Education Exchange)’s online tutoring initiative matches volunteer conversation partners in Edmonton with refugee university students abroad.
