Project Objectives

To support an ethical and cultural tourism that promotes knowledge of Arab culture and encourage the encounter between different cultures


The volunteers had the opportunity to work with people with a very different culture. This opportunity was facilitated from taking an Arabic course during the first months of their stay and that allowed them to interact with the Palestinians involved in the activities. The volunteers have organized campaigns for human rights and to combat social and economic exclusion of the Palestinian population, as the Olive Picking and Tree Planting Campaigns. Finally, the volunteers have contributed to the promotion of the knowledge and spread their experience thanks to a video-photographic reportage, that have documented the activities of the host, and through the techniques of visual anthropology, studied the intercultural relationship that is established between tourists from different nationalities and the local Palestinian population.
