technology and skill which the world got a glimpse of in Haiti and Southeast Asia. Participants will
see Israel in a new light – that of humanitarian innovation. They will better understand how
technology that we often take for granted can be used to help improve people’s lives – and they
will be inspired to do so as well.

Canada, however all participants are responsible for their travel to and from the US gateway city
of departure.
