know thy heritage

AN INVITATION FOR PALESTINIAN-AMERICAN YOUTH TO

‘Visit and Live Palestine!’

Know Thy Heritage (KTH)

HCEF’s “Know Thy Heritage” annual program was developed to preserve the Arab Palestinian heritage, and highlight the important location of Palestine as part of the Holy Land by connecting youth of Palestinian ancestry, who live in the United States and else where, with their roots in Palestine.

Know Thy Heritage empowers Palestinian youth in the Diaspora by strengthening their knowledge of their Palestinian identity, culture, history, traditions, as well as their understanding of Palestinian economic environment, political landscape, social structures and conditions. “Visit & Live Palestine” provides them with the necessary tools and skills to enable them to be in continuous connection to their roots, heritage and homeland.
