We are a member of Clean Up the World . Our mission: To Clean Up Israel. Our vision: Increased awareness to visual effect of littering, will lead to conscientious change in current polluting behaviour. We ( are not for profit ) support and promote community actions that unite groups and individuals as the key to long term environmental change. Our actions include support for both educational initiatives and practical environmental activities.
Education and Youth Force: … “ to include activities of soldiers awareness to environmental issues and contribution to community”…
Israel’s Youth Movements The young leaders incorporate every year Environmental awareness & contribution activities. Many of these activities are low budgeted & self funded, and so - limited in numbers. In 2010 we supported several hundreds volunteers in various locations. Our goal is establishing & supporting regular year round activities.
Thousands of overseas Jewish Students in their gap year participate each year in such programs; “Volunteering in Israel” They study about Judaism, Israel, & Hebrew (in some cases for college credit), volunteer, travel, & befriend peers from Israel and around the world. These programs which lead to personal growth and strengthened Jewish identity are increasing in popularity. In 2010 we supported hundreds of overseas volunteers’ Clean-Ups.
