The Land of Canaan Foundation supports traditional farming communities in Palestine. The Foundation partners with two Palestinian organizations to identify projects and channel resources directly to those who can benefit immediately.
A small investment in the hard working fair trade women's cooperatives in Palestine can pay back many times over by bringing financial security to the coop members and their communities.
Converting Palestinian farmers' tractors to run on used falafel oil is environmentally responsible, supports a renewable resource not fossil fuels, helps waste management of used cooking oil, and most importantly, frees the farmer from dependence on costly imported fuel for a lifetime.
Transformational investing offers a positive and creative approach to a challenging situation. Beyond a simple monetary return, the outcome being sought is transformation – hope in place of fear, peace in place of violence, empowerment in place of injustice, changed lives, changed circumstances.
