villages. During the tour, participants will meet with local activists involved
in various endeavors in the fields of entrepreneurship, education, culture, and

We will also visit the city of Beer Sheva and will focus on social and
civic initiatives operating in the city and around the Ben-Gurion University of
the Negev. The tour will include visits to non-profit organizations active in
