Donations are still the central pillar of financing the running costs of our rehabilitation work. Most of our donors know Lifegate and also the supporting association from personal contacts and in some cases many years of solidarity.
Become a part of the Lifegate family and support the children and young people of the West Bank with a donation. Our association is recognised as non-profit and charitableand will issue you a confirmation of donation.
Donation receipts are issued at the end of the year. If you need a donation receipt already in the current year, please contact the office.

Sale of goods from our workshops
An essential task of the association is to sell the goods from the Lifegate workshops in Beit Jala in Germany. Many people help actively and offer the goods at bazaars in parishes and at Christmas markets.
They sell items in a circle of friends and address companies that are looking for gifts for their employees, for example. Many of them have shared their experiences and collected a whole basket of ideas. Please speak to the employees of our workshop sales department.
Current note: Unfortunately, the olive oil of last year’s harvest is already completely sold out. We are happy to take pre-orders for this year’s harvest!

From the beginning, many people have visited Lifegate on site and have thus been able to get a personal impression. They have come to us as an individual traveller or in organized group tours. Everyone is welcome and the team around Burghard Schunkert is looking forward to guests.
For many years, Lifegate has been cooperating with an Israeli organizer of pilgrim and walking tours to the Holy Land. The tours booked through this tour operator are planned according to the fair travel principle: All the groups visit Lifegate and also stay overnight in the Lifegate guesthouse, Lifegate Garden, or in another place in the West Bank. This means that your visit will benefit us economically, too. You will get a fair insight into the circumstances and views of both the Arab and the Jewish-Israeli side.
Please contact Burghard Schunkert or the office if you are interested!

Working for Lifegate
There is the possibility to support us actively for a certain period of time within the framework of an organised voluntary service or during a stay doing voluntary work, both at Lifegate and in the guest house. The possibilities of engagement are very versatile:
- Handicraft work (Lifegate and Lifegate Garden)
- Educational work in kindergarten, school and in the vocational training workshop
- Therapeutic cooperation
- Cooperation in kitchen and cafeteria
- Collaboration in the Lifegate Garden guest house
The period of cooperation in a short-term assignment should last from a minimum of one month to a maximum of 3 months. In addition, the German Association of the Holy Land sends two volunteers to Lifegate every year for a period of one year. Please contact the office for further information!
