Ecotourism Development in Nazareth

Category :: Israel
Share |
The Fauzi Azar Inn is a beautiful 300 year old Ottoman building that was converted into an inn in 2005. The Fauzi Azar Inn promotes ecotourism in Nazareth and works with the community to contribute to its development in various areas. The inn uses local resources to create new work places, to raise the self- image of the local community, and to encourage economic growth while preserving the universal values of natural and cultural preservation. The aim is to introduce in Nazareth, which is the largest Arab city in Israel, a new model of tourism and thus "bridge the gap" between Arabs and Jews. At the same time the Inn is creating a model for increased tourism along the Israel National Trail (Shvil Israel) and the recently completed Jesus Trail in order to promote both trails and the corresponding economic potential.

GoEco volunteers will have the opportunity to contribute to the Fauzi Azar Inn and Jesus Trail and gain a unique cultural experience. This volunteer program is also recommended in Rough Guide Clean Breaks addition.

As a volunteer, you will be involved in hosting the guests and reception work, which includes check-ins and check-outs, answering local area questions, making tea, coffee and cakes. You will also be encouraged to volunteer with other projects associated with our Inn such as the Jesus Trail (a new hiking trail from Nazareth to the Sea of Galilee). Volunteers will help clean and maintain the Jesus Trail and other natural areas in and around national parks and nature reserves. In addition to keeping the outdoors beautiful, this will also hopefully increase environmental awareness in the local community. We also want volunteers who can help teach our staff a new language or other skills that can be extended to the local community. Your volunteer commitment is 6 hours per day, with 1 or 2 days off per week. Most of the volunteer hours will be in the afternoon and evening.

Min age 18
Cultural tolerance and open-mindedness
A minimum 6 week commitment
High level of independence and flexibility
Good level of English
Motivation to work with tourists and local community

Full travel & medical insurance
