Mission: To support local partners in the middle east in developing the abraham path, a long-distance walking trail across the region, as: a catalyst for socioeconomic development and sustainable tourism; a place of meeting and connection between people from the middle east and people around the world; and a creative space for stories that highlight the unique culture, heritage and hospitality of the region.
Programs: To develop the abraham path together with local partners in the middle east: 1078 km of trail created by end 2014 up 617km over the previous year, across 100 communities, and with just under 3,000 walkers in the year, and over 7800 since the start of the project. The walking trail now covers 689 walking days. Together with our partners we trained new guides and homestay hosts and we increased the number of direct grants to local partners, as well as the number and size of grants distributed under a project we manage for the world bank. The project also received major endorsement from national geographic with the abraham path being ranked the nr. 1 best new trail in the world. The world bank made available reimbursement grants of $2,324,008. Revenue under this grant is recognized as allowable costs, as identified in the grant budget, are incurred. During the year ended december 31, 2014, the organization recognized revenue of $461,979 under such reimbursement grant.
