Intern Spotlight: Daryl Mifsud

Daryl Mifsud serves as OEP's Development Organizer intern. He reflects on On Earth Peace's impact in his life during his internship.

 

Why are you drawn/applied to On Earth Peace?

In the simplest way, I wanted to spend my time and energy working with an NGO that puts their values and mission first, before anything else. Apart from On Earth Peace strong philosophy and beliefs, I was really drawn to OEP as it is able to cover a plethora of issues that plague our societies, and do so in a manner which centers the individuals and communities which many times are effected or a part of struggle, and this speaks volumes to the quality and genuinity of work we're trying to achieve.

In June, two of our interns, Haya Selah (Palestine Justice Organizer) and Hadil Alhayek (Organizing Fellow), connected with Spark Innovation training program in Gaza, Palestine, to train youth in Kingian Nonviolence. The program utilized On Earth Peace’s Agape-Satyagraha training in conflict resolution based on Martin Luther King’s teachings. During the two-month program, Haya and Hadil taught 23 participants ages 14 to 18 how to resolve issues in their local community nonviolently.
