Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI)
The Ecumenical Accompainment Program in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) is a program of the World Council of Churches (WCC) - an outcome of the Palestine Israeli Ecumenical Forum, established in 2002 and brings internationals to the West Bank to experience life under occupation. Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) provide protective presence to vulnerable communities, monitor and report human rights abuses and support Palestinians and Israelis working together for peace. When they return home, EAs campaign for a just and peaceful resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict through an end to the occupation, respect for international law and implementation of UN resolutions.
JAI and EAPPI
The JAI meets with some EAPPI teams upon arrival to Palestine, invites teams to attend many of the JAI activities and programs, coordinates for visiting groups and delegation to the JAI for meeting with some EAPPI teams on various spots and locations.
