We’re working for a stronger Israel.

Israelis on the margins seek the chance to participate fully in the nation they love. We make it possible, increasing independence, opportunities, and support for the most vulnerable people. Our investment in Israel’s human capital uniquely strengthens her future.

We partner with the Israeli government to develop innovative solutions to social challenges, tapping into Israel's famous entrepreneurial spirit to help close the achievement gap. Here's our model: We effectively pilot research-backed social experiments in key locations, testing and optimizing our initiatives, and then hand them over to the government, which scales them up to run nationwide.
