About Habiba Community

Habiba Community is committed to transforming the lives of local Bedouin communities through promoting sustainable agriculture and permaculture. We do this by empowering the Bedouin we employ to experiment with organic farming, helping them to not only grow their own produce but to conduct their own research into how best to make use of the resources around us. Our goal at the farm is to help the local Bedouin learn and create their own farms, thus creating employment, food security, and a sense of commitment to the future of our shared environment. Habiba aspires to set a successful example to be followed by locals across the Sinai Peninsula.

Habiba Community is based in Nuweiba, South Sinai with the Sinai Mountains on one side and sandy beaches with turquoise waters on the other. The farm is based on a plot of what was an empty desert and has transformed it into a production hub of locally grown organic vegetables, as well as a center for research in sustainable desert agriculture. We are a center for research and regularly collaborate and conduct knowledge transfer with the Desert Research Center as well as agricultural research institutes around the world. For this reason, Habiba welcomes volunteers, students conducting research, and experts.

Habiba also aims to promote the importance of conservation. We teach the local communities the benefits of organic farming practices, showing that it not only benefits the individuals who consume the product, but also the environment as a whole.

Volunteering at the Organic Farm

The goal of this project is to help Bedouin organic farmers with their research and experimental farming projects. You will help them discover new desert agricultural techniques and exchange cultural experiences.

This is a unique opportunity for you to work with the Bedouins side-by-side, for you to learn to see the world through their eyes, and to give them a chance to do the same with you.

By participating in this project you will be empowering local Bedouins to create their own food security in an uncertain world, as well as to teach them not only to farm in the desert but to conduct desert farming research to continue innovating on their own. Our metric for success is when one of our farmers can leave to create their own experimental farm elsewhere in the desert.

Training

You will spend a few days at Habiba Organic Farm learning desert farming, water management techniques, and waste management in order to be able to train the Bedouin community.

What should I bring?

Sun protection, including lightweight clothing to cover your head, neck, and shoulders, mosquito repellant, sturdy shoes, work gloves, beach gear, and a sense of adventure. Most of the above are available in shops around Dahab and Nuweiba, but it is preferable to buy your quality shoes and cargo gear before arriving. Winter gets chilly, even in Sinai, especially in January and February, so bring warm clothes for the evenings.

Día típico

You will interact with community members at the Habiba Organic Farm. You will spend time doing organic farming, helping with projects run by local community members, and generally interacting with them. Work schedule varies by season and the most critical time is autumn, starting mid-September.

The workday schedule is flexible, but it is usually divided into morning and afternoon activities. In the morning it starts around 7 am and finishes around 10 am, all the volunteers have breakfast together between 10:30 and 11:30 am, then there is free time and the afternoon activities start again around 3 pm until 5 pm. The schedule slightly changes between summer and winter time.

The workday usually consists of: 

  • Helping local farmers with their agricultural daily activities such as planting, cleaning, harvesting, and other general farm work.
  • Assisting in the construction and maintenance of farm buildings and infrastructure.
  • Plant maintenance, composting, and sifting soil for the Habiba Farms.
  • Interacting with members of the community and participating in knowledge exchange.


Volunteers work six days a week, with excursions typically planned on the seventh day unless, of course, you prefer to stay and relax at the lodge.

After work, it is free time for you to relax in the beachside area. Dinner is served at 7 pm and usually is vegetarian, home-style food made entirely with produce from the organic farm.

Actividades de tiempo libre

The recreational activities available in the Red Sea and the neighboring mountains and valleys are endless and breathtaking.

The coast is dotted with popular snorkeling and diving sites, and nearby cities of Taba and Dahab offer many tourist activities.

Weekly excursions to Dahab offer an opportunity to enjoy the "city" scene and easy transportation is available to Sharm el-sheik, St. Catherine, Cairo, and many other locations in Egypt.

There are numerous dive centers around, which can both train you in diving and rent you gear. You can also arrange camel rides as day trips or multi-day excursions. There are also yoga, meditation, and craft centers around Nuweiba, boat trips, and safaris.

Please communicate with your host if something you’re interested in will take more than a few hours and will interrupt with your volunteer work.

sobre la organización

Give back to the community while volunteering at our organic farm or our learning center and help us to build a strong and heallthy future!

Conoce a tu anfitrión(a)

The Habiba Organization which includes a communal organic farm and our learning center is dedicated to building a strong, healthy future for the entire South Sinai Community.

The Habiba Organization is based in Nuweiba, South Sinai, Egypt. Nuweiba is a previously prosperous tourist destination, however we are now aiming to redirect the communities interest and future towards organic agriculture and providing the community with after school classes. The community children do not have resources as children in big cities so we decided to start this after school learning center to give them a chance to express themselves and find out their talents and see the world in a different way , open their eyes and find best ways to manage their very limited resources and protect the environment.

The goals of the Habiba Organization are to simulaneously provide opportunities for the next generation, as well as support the community in achieving a sustainable income from environmentally friendly farming practices.
