Planting a tree as a sign of hope for better future
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 27 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"
