This round our projects will focus on some of the most crucial social justice issues raised in Israel today:
- Helping refugees and people seeking asylum overcome the Covid-19 crisis with Elifelet – Every child deserves a happy childhood. For refugee and undocumented children in Israel this is a struggle. From morning until evening, from infancy to primary school, Elifelet creates a holistic array of programs to ensure the safety, education, and wellbeing of refugee and asylum seeker children.
- Working with Palestinians living under occupation, because unless we solve the core tenets of the conflict, violence will continue to rage with Yesh Din – By representing Palestinians who are victims of settler violence and who have had land confiscated by settlements, Yesh Din’s actions challenge the structural violations of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories.
- Ensuring equality for all Israelis and an end to the occupation through the Association for Civil Rights in Israel –They took a leading role during the pandemic, ensuring pensioners had access to social security, opposing invasive surveillance from the security establishment and protecting freedom of speech.
