A Matching Grant for the Abraham Path Initiative

Two generous board members are challenging us to raise $100,000 by the end of the year to widen the Abraham Path global community and the economic development impact that comes from community-based experiential tourism.

Contributing to the Abraham Path Initiative (API) means building capacity among guides and homestay hosts along walking trails in the Middle East. It means exploring new geographies and creating outdoor experiential courses in which international and local people may come together to find new solutions to global challenges. Together we transform perceptions, one footstep at a time.

Make your gift now and it will be doubled.

Your 2019 gift will:

-Bring livelihood to low-income residents along the trails

  • Train guides
  • Expand homestay host program
  • Improve business opportunities at women’s centers

-Bring students from UNRWA refugee camp schools to walk on the Abraham Path in Palestine, with:

  • Environmental sustainability education
  • Learning about local flora and fauna
  • Breakfast and lunch prepared in local women’s centers

-Develop community-based trails in a new frontier: the Kurdish region of northern Iraq

Promote walking in the Middle East in ways that foster new friendships across challenging divides. Every gift will be matched. For more impact, make it monthly!
