Yahalom Foundation’s Tailwind project serves its lone soldier community directly. We aim to provide a familiar, close-to-home framework and provide personal assistance to people who share a similar army experience. 

We believe that having a smaller, tight-knit organization enables us to administer donations specifically to where they generate the most impact.

The Yahalom Foundation was established in 2015 by Yahalom Veterans to maximize the potential of the Unit’s human capital through forming an engaged community.

Yahalom means diamond in English and is a top-tier elite unit of the IDF that provides unique combat engineering solutions. Recently, Yahalom was awarded a unit citation for operational excellence from the Chief of Staff for its role in uncovering cross-border tunnels from Lebanon into Israel.

As a community, the Yahalom Foundation has launched the “Tail Wind Project,” which caters to the needs of released lone soldiers as they transition into civilian life. The project is staffed by one scholarship recipient and a small group of committed volunteers who served as lone soldiers in Yahalom.

 

As former lone soldiers, we understand the importance of creating a community based on comradeship and leveraging the potential of our community for self-efficacy.

                     

The Impact

We believe by supporting newly released lone soldiers, we can empower them to achieve their potential and later give back to the lone soldier community, and support the next generation of their peers.

We have identified key areas in which former lone soldiers often require assistance.

These areas are critical in supporting veterans through their transition and assimilation into Israeli civilian life.

 

How can your contribution support our community?

·       Provide rent and housing subsidies for an entire apartment which will be occupied by Yahalom veterans.

·       Support our lone soldier community with scholarships in return for volunteering with, and contributing to, the Yahalom Foundation ex-lone soldiers.

·       Hosting community events to encourage a stronger connection amongst the Yahalom Foundation’s lone soldier network

·       Subsidize costs for professional services for members of our community (academic/employment guidance, mental healthcare etc.)

The Yahalom Foundation is a registered not-for-profit organisation. All proceeds go directly to funding projects, and all donations help us to build a strong, vibrant, and self-sufficient ex-lone soldier community.
