Feynan Ecolodge in Jordan

 In Stories

Mohammad Daifallah works at Feynan Ecolodge in a biosphere reserve in Jordan.

The lodge generates all of its off-grid electricity from the sun, and is lit at night by candles and stars.

100% of employees are from local communities. Mohammad was born into a Bedouin family in a nearby cave.

Revenue goes towards conservation and protection of endangered species around the reserve, as well as income- and employment-generating projects for local villages and Bedouin communities.

Feynan Ecolodge is exemplary: a sustainable tourism destination that also provides locals like Mohammad with stable work close to their families, along with opportunities to meet people from many cultures and share experiences and traditions.
