FAIR TOURISM REMARKS


Many aspects of Extend's programming align closely with the goals and values of Fair Tourism. Extend offers a unique educational opportunity that allows young people from a different country, who may have otherwise only experienced Israel Proper, to visit many towns and cities of the West Bank. In addition to providing our participants the opportunity to experience local culture and local narratives, we also contribute to the economies of the local communities that we visit by staying in their guesthouses, eating at the restaurants, and purchasing local goods.
