KKL-JNF has embarked on a unique program that provides environmental education to Ethiopian immigrants in absorption centers in northern Israel. The first seminar on the subject, held at the KKL-JNF Educational Field Center in the Lavi Forest, exposed the Halom Yarok (Green Dream) project to the staff members of the absorption centers. The day included lectures, workshops and discussions on the issue.
The idea for the social-environmental education initiative for absorption centers was developed by KKL-JNF teams in Israel’s northern region. The project’s objective is to espouse sustainable environmental education, tailored to the unique needs of immigrants at various stages of their absorption into Israeli society, by means of a partnership program between immigrants and absorption center staff members. This project is a combination of the efforts of a number of partners, including the Jewish Agency, the Ministry of
Environmental Protection, the Ministry of Immigrant Absorption, the Adult Education organization, the Etzba’ot Yerukot (Green Fingers) organization, the Igud Ha’arim (Cities Association) and KKL-JNF.
