Desert Stars

Desert Stars was established to nurture a new leadership generation within the Bedouin society, a generation of leaders who take responsibility for the creation of a better, more just and more equal society, which facilitate a productive coexistence in the Negev. Desert Stars' goal is to identify and promote young Bedouins with potential leadership qualities and an interest in social engagement, who wish to develop their life skills and leadership abilities, so they will lay the foundations for future business and social development of the Bedouin society.
