‘Celebrating Communities’ is a joint project of BINA and Friends by Nature
The Ethiopian-Israeli “Celebrating Communities” program aims to strengthen Ethiopian-Israeli young adults by connecting them to their own culture, empowering them to become leaders and to share that culture with others. It is currently running in three cities with large Ethiopian-Israeli communities: Gadera, Rishon Letsiyon and Petah Tikva. In each city, groups of 15 participants take part in a range of activities including:
The groups also participate in a joint weekend seminar for a day of learning and celebrating culture that forms the first step towards building links between the individual communities to form a network, a “community of communities.”
Friends by Nature is a non-profit organization established in 2005 with the goal of strengthening and empowering Israeli Ethiopian communities.
