Israel is one Country that has more than anyone can Imagine starting from its Golden Sandy Beaches, beauty and Serenity, ancient history and Archaeology and the trending vibe of the Metropolis.
Thinking of the treasures of the magnificent and sacred City of Jerusalem, the waters of the lowest place on earth, the dead sea and the desert that takes in all natures glory. Israel offers a guaranteed lifetime experience considering its cutting edge culture, action packed adventures and so much more to see and do.
Jerusalem is the Capital City of Israel and by far one of the most famous and fascinating cities in the world.
Mashav is Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Mashav is responsible for the design, coordination and implementation of the State of Israel’s worldwide development and cooperation programs in developing countries. MASHAV believes that its greatest possible contribution to developing countries can be made in fields where Israel has relevant expertise accumulated during its own development experience as a young country facing similar challenges. MASHAV’s development programs are conducted through workshops and training in the fields of education, agriculture, medicine and many more.
Mashav aims at helping people to know how to fish rather than give them fish as most of the donors do. This makes Israel a Unique country in all ways since their focus is on sustainability.
