Help Arab and Jewish women start their first job after years of unemployment and fulfill their dreams!
Why “Cooking Coexistence?” In Hebrew we call it Tavshil Hevrati, which translates to “social meal,” but that doesn’t have the same ring to it in English. “Cooking Coexistence” truly expresses this soul of innovative social enterprise, which brings together Arab and Jewish women of low-income backgrounds, age 35 and over, providing them with steady employment.
Tavshil Hevrati gives women who have never had a chance to work before an opportunity to work with meaning—providing daily meals for children in need in the region. Along with this, it provides employees with in-depth vocational training, developing both the emotional and the physical tools these women need in order to enter the job market at such a late stage in their lives, and to become, for the first time in their lives, independent and productive members of society.
What We’re Doing
Reducing barriers and removing stigmas! The inclusive culture of Tavshil Hevrati creates a shared experience that reduces the barriers and removes the stigmas that too often divide Arabs and Jews.
The Cooking Coexistence Team: Today, a team of 36 Arab and Jewish employees prepares delicious and nutritious meals that are delivered mainly to children at schools in the central district of Israel as part of the government’s National School Lunch Program.
Capacity: At its full capacity today, the kitchen can prepare up to 10,000 meals for impoverished children every day!
What We Can Do With Your Help
We are seeking to enlarge the staff, to provide enough meals for all of the children who need them.
The NEED: In order to sustain and expand this professional employment program, we are looking to raise $72,000.
Where the money goes: This money will allow creation of job places for more Arab women who have never held a steady job. They will have the chance to be really involved in Israeli society and, of course, prepare and supply more meals for children in need in the area.
How YOU can help: Support the campaign at any level you choose and share it with your friends, as much as possible!
