We are community-oriented
EAPPI is invited by the local Heads of Churches in Jerusalem. We live closely connected to the communities where we work, walking side by side local Christians and all those suffering in Palestine and Israel. Through our daily encounters we build close relationships with those we interact with. We base our accompaniment on listening to the needs of local communities and consultation and support from an advisory group of Christians, Jews, and Muslims.
The word accompaniment literally means “sharing bread with someone.” Sharing together the basics of life offers EAs the opportunity to listen to and experience others’ struggles. Truly understanding these struggles gives us a stronger voice against injustice and motivation to advocate for change.
