YEDID ("friend" in Hebrew) was established in 1997 to promote social and economic justice in Israel through a national network of Citizen Rights Centers in underprivileged and marginalized communities throughout Israel.
YEDID empowers low-income and vulnerable Israelis to break the cycle of poverty and reach self-sufficiency by accessing their rights and economic opportunities.
Through a nationwide network of Citizen Rights Centers, highly trained volunteers provide invaluable assistance to thousands of needy individuals and families from across the spectrum of Israel’s multi-cultural society. Volunteers include professionals from the practices of law, business, social work and accounting working side by side with empowered former clients. Hundreds of highly trained volunteers are the strength of our organization. This unique model allows YEDID to keep costs down and spirits up.
YEDID ’s successful strategies for accessing economic justice include:
• Free Individual Assistance
• Community Empowerment Initiatives
• National Advocacy for Policy Change
• Family Budget Management Training
• Financial Management for Youth
• Communities Organizing for Change
• Let´s Get to Work! – Employment Readiness for Low-Income Women
• Youth in Action: Empowering Low-Income Youth
• AYAL: "I Can Succeed" Dropout Prevention Program: an after-school program that also empowers parents with the tools necessary to advocate for their children in the educational system
• MILIM: Early Childhood Education for Ethiopian kindergartners
Sari Revkin is the Executive Director of YEDID.
