Juha's Guesthouse

Juha’s Guesthouse is located in Jisr-a-Zarqa, an Arab village with the lowest socioeconomic ranking in Israel. 

The guesthouse, located on the Israel National Trail, constitutes a first step towards the establishment of tourist business infrastructure, which would allow the local community to boost its financial standing, as well as its reputation among the local and Israel wide population. The project is a model of success for the locals, as well as a greenhouse that provides mentorship and guidance for new entrepreneurs in the village.
