ALIPH is committed to concrete and sustainable initiatives to protect the richness and diversity of the world’s cultural heritage
Preserving the written heritage of Jerusalem
The combined collections of the Jerusalem-based Khalidi, Al-Budeiri and Nashashibi Libraries as well as the Al-Ma'mal Art Foundation hold some of the oldest and largest private collections in Jerusalem, with rare manuscripts from the 12th century onward. The Khalidi Library is coordinating the common effort of these institutions to protect and preserve their threatened heritage.
Saving 16th Century Churches in the Sondondo Valley
Sondondo Valley, Peru
Located in Peru's Sondondo Valley are twelve 16th-century churches, which were damaged during the civil war in the 1980s-90s. The project will complete a general diagnosis and then perform emergency interventions to consolidate the roofs of five of the churches.
Multi-Religious Heritage, Salvage and Education
The sacred site of Aw-Barkhadle in Somalia embodies local diversity, including Christian, Islamic and potentially Jewish religions, as well as indigenous beliefs. The local organization Horn Heritage aims to build communal cohesion and peace by protecting this endangered multi-religious heritage.
