Siraj Center

Tuesday, 25 October 2011 02:21

Since 2005, Siraj has managed to achieve its vision of becoming one of the most prominent and innovative organizations which has driven the development of responsible tourism, re-branding Palestine as a destination for experiential travel and human connection.

 

As part of the Palestinian Center for Rapprochement between People (www.pcr.ps ), 

and the sole non-profit organization, licensed by the Ministry of Tourism, our vision continues to be to welcome international visitors to immerse themselves into Palestinian hospitality, our cultural heritage and unspoiled nature, bringing about a life-enriching exchange and understanding between Palestinians and visitors from other cultural, religious and social backgrounds. Through Siraj’s vision, we were instrumental in leading the initiative to create the Network of Experiential Palestinian Tourism (www.nepto.ps), as well as the Palestinian Responsible Tourism initiative (www.pirt.ps).

 

We are pioneers in Palestine, developing diverse responsible tourism programs, such as local community tourism, home stays, interfaith, pilgrimages, cultural and fact-finding, as well as other special interest programs, such as environmentally friendly tourism packages, including, the Nativity Trail, Sufi Trail, Jerusalem Wilderness and Abraham Path - the first long distance walking route through the West Bank (www.masaribrahim.ps), walking/hiking (www.walkpalestine.com) and cycling tours (www.bikepalestine.com). 

 

We create unique tourism products, which maximize the contribution of the local community.  We train locals within rural and Bedouin communities to be empowered, becoming the decision makers and owners of the packages which we offer to visitors, thus increasing local engagement, economic benefits through job creation, and chances for improved social development.  We advocate best practices resulting in positive impacts, while minimizing negative effects on our cultural heritage and environment.

 

On the official website of Siraj www.sirajcenter.org, you will discover the unique programs that we offer or that we can happily tailor according to your interests and specific needs. 

Siraj is also running and fostering the Masar Ibrahim Al-Khalil program, which is now in its final stages to achieve an independent registered non-governmental organization.

We look forward to welcoming you to Palestine!
