Description: :The Tent of Nations farm seeks to bring people of various cultures and countries together to build a bridge between people and land. The vision of The Tent of Nations is to prepare people to make a positive contribution to their future and society through the values of understanding and respect. This is to be achieved through education-awareness campaigns, youth empowerment, and work camps. The Tent of Nations Farm is located south west of Bethlehem near the village of Nahalin. This land is still under threat of confiscation and we are still in the Israeli courts defending the farm since 26 years without giving up. Still we believe in justice and our response to the unjust situation is in a nonviolent and creative way under the slogan "We refuse to be enemies".

Type of Work: During the 10 days working camp volunteers will help in harvesting Apricots and Apples and also helping in making jam. Also volunteers will help in renovating another cave that will be used for living. In order to start with renovating it is very advisable to understand and realize the type of caves you will be working with and how to be careful in renovating. On some afternoons you will be able to go for tours to different places and explore Bethlehem area as well you will get to know the interesting landscape. The volunteers are expected to help in cleaning, renovating, painting and decorating some of the caves on Daher’s vineyard.
