Be-Atzmi


Be-Atzmi (in Hebrew: On My Own), an NGO that was founded in 1995.

Be-Atzmi’s vision is to bring about a change in the employment scene in Israel by integrating and advancing underprivileged populations into the workforce.

Be-Atzmi develops and operates innovative and effective programs, which help underprivileged men and women throughout Israel, to find their way out of chronic unemployment and into steady, long-term employment.

Be-Atzmi operates employment programs throughout Israel, with a focus on social and geographical peripheries, in which are participating over 9,000 men and women every year.

68% of the participants who were unemployed when they joined one of our programs, found a job,

80% of the graduates who successfully completed their program report that they are satisfied at their workplace, 

55% of the participants who were under the care of a family social worker at the beginning of the program, cut back the frequency of their requests for assistance by the end of the program.

Be-Atzmi’s Board of Directors includes leading figures from Israel’s business and social sectors, which devote their time and rich experience voluntarily for the organization.

Be-Atzmi receives support from the business, the private and the third sector worldwide.

we welcome donations of all levels!
