WORKING HAND IN HAND WITH MODERN PIONEERS TO BUILD ISRAEL
Volunteers have played an integral role in the building of Israel and are a key component in the success of JNF UK’s work and the future of the Jewish state. As a result, JNF UK is promoting a professional volunteering programme, across Israel. This innovative scheme enlists volunteers to work on JNF UK projects and often involves the project beneficiaries as volunteers themselves.
The programme provides a means for young people to make an immediate and lasting contribution to Israel’s success, strengthens their connection to the land and helps develop their teamwork skills. In addition, it enables JNF UK to make each pound donated go further by making great savings on labour costs.
“All our activities are precisely organised, all along with the beneficiary. JNF UK provides professional planning, guidance and execution methods, all learned with much experience.” Says volunteering project manager at JNF UK, Elad. During volunteering days teams carry out work including painting, carpentry, decorating and garden landscaping for a wide spectrum of JNF UK projects, benefiting the young to the elderly and communities large and small.
