From Unemployment – To Employment ,Self-Sufficiency and Well Being!
Be-Atzmi is a nonprofit social organization, which, for over two decades, has been integrating and advancing socially and economically disadvantaged populations towards stable and fair employment suited to their skills and aspirations.
There are over 500,000 women and men in Israel whose life circumstances and surroundings have prevented them from participating in the labor force. In many instances, they have been adversely affected by ethnic, gender or age discrimination, compounded by their geographical distance from a choice of available workplaces. They are grappling with the need to improve their skill set and often need to define their professional aspirations and be encouraged to fulfill them.
Be-Atzmi actively integrates and advances excluded groups in the job market. We develop and run long-term employment programs in over 100 locations throughout the country, catering to some 9,000 women and men every year. Our program beneficiaries include welfare families, new immigrants, the ultra-Orthodox community, the Arab sector, single mothers, and many others (To read more).
We all deserve a chance to succeed
Did you know?
For every unemployed person who contacts the Israeli Employment Service and is entitled to unemployment benefits, there are two unemployed persons who have not worked for a long period of time, are defined as “not participating in the labor force” and do not even appear in the official statistics relating to unemployment in Israel. These ‘transparent’ and economically disadvantaged people would like to become part of the labor force, yet require appropriate tools, support and assistance.
That’s precisely what we do at Be-Atzmi.
