FZY have partnered with Project TEN, The Jewish Agency for Israel, to offer Netina – a 10-day programme in Ghana which focusses on cultural exchange and education-based volunteering, as well as bringing young people into a framework of core Jewish values, including Tzedakah (Charity) and Tikkun Olam (Social Action.)
Netina gives participants the opportunity to travel to Ghana for a programme with strong roots in local community, cultural exchanges and developmental projects.
Participants will work to develop 21st century skills in the children and youth they will meet throughout the week on projects ingrained into the local daily life.
Participants will create and strengthen ties of friendship between the two cultures, working with Ghanaians and deepening their own understanding of the developing world around them.
Participants will also get the chance to share their skills, put into practice their leadership on the ground and experience challenges in a unique and exciting environment.
The dates for Netina years 12 are August 14th-25th
