Suitable for both day-trips and longer stays, the West Bank is home to Ramallah, the hub of Palestine's tech activity and full of coffee shops, restaurants, and a bustling "scene" for techies and artists alike.

Beyond Ramallah, the West Bank is home to a stunning landscape, the Dead Sea, and historical cities such as Jericho, Nablus, and Bethlehem and one of the world's most hospitable cultures. 


Gaza Sky Geeks - the leading tech hub in Gaza and initiative of international humanitarian aid agency Mercy Corps - facilitates visits from international mentors, from Silicon Valley and elsewhere, to share their expertise with Gazan software engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs.

An application process and advanced planning is required, but those who visit will have the opportunity to be a part of supporting the startup sector of one of the most amazing, inaccessible places in the world.
