The Abraham Path Initiative (API) promotes walking in the Middle East as a tool for deepening understanding, experiencing cultures, and fostering friendships across challenging divides.
The Abraham Path Initiative invests in projects that shed light on the kindness and hospitality of the people in the Middle East by supporting trail development, storytelling, job creation, and experiential tourism.
Stephanie Saldaña writes about refugees at Mosaic Stories, a blog that aims to collect and protect intangible cultural heritage in the Middle East through research, storytelling, and education. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, and she is writing a book about her experiences.
Abraham Path Fellows bring to light stories seldom seen in mainstream media and explore new trails.
The Abraham Path Initiative is an international nonprofit that invests with local partners to achieve shared goals for a fruitful future.
Join us for an Abraham Path Experience, through which internationals and locals will walk together and exchange best practices, seeking regional solutions to global challenges that range from climate change and environmental conservation to community development and entrepreneurship.
