Last week alone, Project Wadi Attir welcomed visitors from 11 countries on five continents! We couldn’t be happier with our progress, as the Visitor’s Center moves into its first year of operation.
Our visitors included:
A group representing different cooperatives from China:
An international group participating in an international program called “Green Growth: Policy Measures and Implementation Tools,” organized by the Weitz Center for Development Studies. The group contained members from Albania, Ghana, Mongolia, Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, and Colombia, many of whom commented on the similarities between issues faced by the Bedouin community and by their own communities, and the feasibility of developing models similar to PWA back home.
A group of 200 young Germans on a tour of Israel arranged by the Foreign Ministry. The delegation met with both Amran Amarni, the Director of the Visitor’s Center, as well as Mohammed Alnabari, the Mayor of Hura.
On a related note, one of the most promising recent visits is that of a group of 50 Israeli (and a few American) tour guides working with diverse groups within Israel. Now that the project is on their radar, we know our message will continue to spread around the world!
