What We Do ?

My Middle East is a socially-responsible, private travel planning service that helps you design and implement customized trips to Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey based on your own travel dates, travel preferences, and personal style. Our guests are interesting individuals who are global in their sensitivity, and who are looking for the next level in travel experiences.

We like to think of it as the closest thing to traveling to a destination where you have local friends who know you well, and who are able to offer you the best of their city and country to suit the things you enjoy doing while on vacation- and doing it all at the same time as benefiting the local community.

My Middle East also offers exceptional trips that you can join to interesting destinations around the world- places like Croatia, Lapland, Tanzania, Peru, and Mongolia. Check our home page for trips currently on offer and others coming up.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

At My Middle East, we put great emphasis on providing exceptional travel experiences to our guests, but we are also strongly committed to supporting the communities in which we operate, at multiple levels. The social responsibility objectives of My Middle East focus on three tracks:

  • BUILDING BRIDGES

    Bringing people from different cultures together at a human level, both within our groups as well as between the groups and the peoples of the places we visit, and helping achieve more inter-cultural understanding. There will always be meaningful interactions that go very well beyond traditional sterile tourism.

  • EMPOWERMENT

    Directly benefiting certain segments of local communities, in particular women and young people, through volunteer work, micro economic empowerment, and capacity building. In addition and whenever possible, these segments will be directly involved in implementing some of the activities on the trips, including hosting and welcoming people to their homes.

  • YOUTH IN LOCAL COMMUNITIES

    The Middle East is comprised of an overwhelmingly young population. These young people face very daunting challenges, as they have to deal with all sorts of social, economic, cultural, and political issues. Unfortunately, and especially in poorer or rural areas, they lack a lot of the skills and training necessary to live decently in today’s world, despite the fact that they are very entrepreneurial and resourceful by nature.

    My Middle East is committed to doing its part in trying to help these underprivileged segments. My Middle East allocates every year a portion of its profits to directly providing training and capacity building to people in the local communities who are most in need. This training is primarily focused on helping young people create socially responsible businesses (such as My Middle East itself). The training begins with awareness-raising on the responsibilities of individuals toward the development of their communities and cities, and moves on to provide the basics of business planning and management. The objective is to encourage youth to start new businesses that both provide new employment opportunities while at the same time responding to some of the developmental needs of the local communities.
