Current Projects

building farming capacity

Throughout the Jordan Valley in the West Bank, the Red Weevil insects attack date trees in farming villages, reducing farming capacity and output. This problem can be solved with environmentally friendly pesticides. However, the villages lack trucks to spray their crops. Building Together is raising funds for the trucks, to fight the pests, increase crop yields and improve the lives of these farmers and their village.

building Joint businesses

Our first project within this initiative, is a joint business focused on bringing two communities, one Israeli and one Palestinian to produce date honey business that will drive revenue and employment for both communities while cultivating relationships on both sides of the border.
