About the Initiative
The purpose of the Abraham Path Initiative is to inspire hope for humanity.
Our mission is to ‘dust off the footsteps’ of an ancient journey made by Abraham, a man known as “the Friend”, who is remembered for his legendary welcome and kindness toward strangers, a tradition alive to this day in the Middle East and across the world. This ancient journey is a thread that binds humanity together, and a tangible reminder that no matter what divides us, what unites us is far, far greater.
We are cultivating a cultural route that celebrates this legendary journey. We believe that a cultural route is a space where people can encounter the unifying power of stories, walking, and hospitality.
What We Do:
Incubate projects and ideas that shed a different light on the Middle East and to connect the rest of the world to the region.
Invest in human encounters, education and storytelling projects
Coordinate and support a network of educational institutions and international partners that engage cultural memory along the Abraham Path route
The Abraham Path Cultural Route
The cultural footsteps of Abraham in all their forms
As a global platform for experiential education in the Middle East
For walking and community-based tourism in a number of regions along the route
As a virtual path, an interactive tool on which the above initiatives can be experienced by all
