In His Steps: Pathways of Peace, a U.S. nonprofit organization, offers a venue through which to respond to the needs of daily life of oppressed people in Palestine and Israel. Projects are developed from within local communities to be sustainable. This is a means through which individuals, service organizations, foundations and faith communities can provide humanitarian assistance which in turn strengthens the indigenous communities helping them to thrive in peace.
IHS has cultivated long-term relationships with government officials and community organizations in dozens of villages across the West Bank. These enduring partnerships provide IHS with intimate knowledge of vulnerable Palestinian communities and a foundation of trust for mobilizing community action.
IHS has evolved over the last 15 years from an early interest in developing "Alternative Tourism" in 2000 that began with relationships in Bethlehem, into an affiliation of local support throughout Palestine. This support collaborates efforts with doctors, nurses, and therapists in Palestine working with medical centers in the U.S. to offer specialized training and equip local practitioners.
