Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity and is intended to promote goodness or improve human quality of life. In return, this activity can produce a feeling of self-worth and respect. There is no financial gain involved for the individual. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development, socialization, and fun. Volunteering may have positive benefits for the volunteer as well as for the person or community served. It is also intended to make contacts for possible employment. It is helping, assisting, or serving another person or persons without pay. Many volunteers are specifically trained in the areas they work, such as medicine, education, or emergency rescue. Others serve on an as-needed basis, such as in response to a natural disaster.
The ZaitoonTree initiative was launched to provide an insight on Palestine from a unique angle. The manifesto of the Palestinian cause on the global and local media networks has always been the political instability, poverty, suffering and humanitarian aid. People from the Americas, Europe, Eastern Asia and elsewhere have long looked at Palestine and the Palestinians through the Israeli perspective.
At ZaitoonTree we aim to view Palestine and its people from their own perspective; How it is like to live there, what are the local and international events that take place, what do people do to earn their living and most importantly, how people are living their every day lives under the direct Israeli occupation. All of which is to be discussed online between communities via video conferencing techniques.

As a company of travelers — who have studied, worked, taught, lived and volunteered overseas — we know what a stressful and difficult experience it is to find reliable information about programs abroad. Most people have more information when they buy a TV from Best Buy than when they choose a study or volunteer abroad program. That’s a big risk to take when you’re flying halfway across the world, not to speak of the financial commitment. This was a problem we wanted to solve with Go Overseas.
