Grape and Fig Harvest. The branch cannot bear fruit by itself
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: Because August/September are the months of picking grapes and figs, it is always useful to have more people sharing this significant time with Tent of Nations, volunteers, and other young people. Young people from different backgrounds will campout for ten days. During this time, they will harvest different fruits and help in making grape and fig jam, dried figs and grapes, grape syrup, and grape juice. The program will have the two extremes: the educational part (including field trips, etc.) and the intense time working in the fields. Volunteers are asked to arrive early on the 27th August and leave after breakfast on the 9th of September.
