Busayra Foundation for Cultural Heritage:

The Busayra Foundation for Cultural Heritage was established to enable local actors to sustain the work carried out during SCHEP in Busayra. The enterprise will organize qualified members of the local community to conduct necessary maintenance of the site (in coordination with the Department of Antiquities in Tafileh), and to operate a Heritage Lab in a local school in order to increase students’ awareness about preserving archaeological sites and findings, and teach them valuable new skills. The Foundation will also develop tourism products and work on raising awareness of tourism to Busayra, and will facilitate service provision for visitors in partnership with the local community. Through these activities, the company aims to enhance the economic benefits of tourism for the community surrounding the Busayra archaeological site.
