About the Project
The Fauzi Azar house 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.
Volunteer Work and Contribution
Volunteers will be involved in hosting the guests and reception work. Volunteers will also be encouraged to help with other projects associated with the Inn such as the Jesus Trail. Volunteers can help teach the staff to learn a new foreign language as well as to members of the coal community.
