Shalom, salaam, and greetings from the Holy Land!  We at GoEco are based here in Israel so this beautiful, multicultural, multifaith country holds a special place in our hearts.  Besides the expansive beaches of Tel Aviv, incredible history of Jerusalem, and the free-flowing hummus, this little country has an unbelievable amount of places to go and things to see.  Travelers to the Land of Milk and Honey have a lot of options to volunteer, whether it be with animals at a wildlife reserve, helping with the Red Sea coral reef conservation effort, or learning sustainable building at an eco-tourism hotel in the desert.

I was embarking on an opportunity to discover a new country with its local population, its customs, religion and lifestyle. I turned to Israel, a unique country with its numerous and diverse landscapes, particular mode of life and rich history filled with cultural and religious significance.

Volunteer in Israel – Mulicultural Summer Camp

Druze Village, Israel

I had already been living abroad on my own for a year but the idea of spending two weeks volunteering at a summer camp in an Israeli Druze village without knowing anyone was still pretty daunting. Although I had prior experience working with kids, teaching English to a group of seventy-five Druze children, aged seven to thirteen, still seemed a bit intimidating.   Continue reading Xin's post
