Strengthen our work in Kurdistan: your gift today is worth twice as much

We are grateful this Thanksgiving week for you, our donors. So grateful that two generous board members are offering to double your gift. Your assistance expands the Abraham Path global community and the economic development impact that comes from community-based experiential tourism -- especially our pioneering work in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq.

You'll help build capacity among guides and homestay hosts along walking trails in the region we call "the Middle East." Together we'll explore new geographies -- such as Iraqi Kurdistan -- and creating outdoor experiential courses in which international and local people come together to seek 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:

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

- Bring livelihood to low-income residents along multiple trails by

  • Training guides
  • Expanding homestay host program
  • Improving 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

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