At the NCCA
The Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel is a program of the World Council of Churches (WCC) which since 2002 has sent over 1,400 international human rights monitors to the West Bank of Palestine.
The National Council of Churches in Australia are honored to be a sending organisation, and are responsible for the recruitment, training and support of Ecumenical Accompaniers(EA's). In Australia EAPPI is administered by a voluntary committee that relates to both the NCCA staff and EAPPI internationally.
EAPPI's mission is to tolife under occupation, with local Palestinians and Israelis pursuing a just peace, to the international community’s involvement in the conflict, urging them to act against injustice in the region.
