Nazareth Project (NPI) was founded in 1990 to strengthen the healing and educational ministries of Nazareth Hospital and the School of Nursing in Nazareth, Israel. Many of the early founders had experience working in Nazareth and NPI continues to promote volunteer work.
The Nazareth Hospital and School of Nursing are two entities of The Nazareth Trust, one of the most established and prominent Christian organizations in Israel. Nazareth Village and SERVE Nazareth are also programs of the Trust, which every year engage with over 300,000 people, including patients and their families, students, international volunteers, pilgrims and tourists.
SERVE Nazareth is planning to restart its volunteer program in the second half of 2022.
Nazareth Village re-opened in November, after a long shutdown due to lack of tourists in Israel.
