``A Social Enterprise, started by two civil rights activists, in order to bridge the need for marketing for the indigenous Bedouin tourist businesses. We, Sliman - an Israeli Bedouin, and Yeela - an Israeli Jew, have been active together in the Bedouin's civil rights for decades. We view these indigenous tourist venues as having important potential in strengthening the local Bedouin economy, as well as bringing people from different cultures to know and respect each other.
In addition, as the Bedouin way of life sustained itself in a fragile environment, today, when you visit these tourist sites, your hosts continue with their time honored respect of the desert, while you participate in improving the well-being of these indigenous people.``
