Cave Renovation and Fruit Harvest. What you plant, you or/and others will harvest
Description: The Tent of Nations project seeks to bring people of various cultures together to build bridges of understanding, reconciliation, and peace. The long-term goal of The Tent of Nations is to prepare people to make positive contributions to their future and society through the values of understanding, tolerance, and respectful coexistence. These goals are achieved through education awareness campaigns, youth empowerment, and work camps. The Tent of Nations is located on a piece of land southwest of Bethlehem 10 km away from the city near the village of Nahalin. Since 1991, the land is under threat of confiscation by the Israeli military. We are still in the Israeli courts defending our rights to the land until today – 25 years. Still we believe in justice.
Type of Work: Volunteers will help with cleaning, renovating, painting and decorating some of the caves on Daher’s Vineyard. The caves which they will be working on are centuries old and each have their own character and history, making this a unique and stimulating programme to participate in. It takes a long time to make the caves into livable areas, but as the work progresses, the volunteers will be able to see the results and the beauty in these caves and their stones. During the camp, the volunteers will also assist with the harvesting of some of the farm’s fruit trees.
