Our graduate Amal, who graduated from the Institute of Hotel Management and Tourism in 2011, chose to follow her heart and passion to volunteer in the Franciscan Boys Home in Bethlehem.

She helps teaching the children who are living there to do their homework efficiently and to improve their education skills in writing and reading. Her first experience in volunteering was last year in a summer camp for children at the Latin Parish in Beit Jala.

According to Amal this human activity helps her to improve her personality and to know more about the lives of others. In turn, this helps her to gain understanding of others and how they think.
