Fund Activities

The Friends of Raveh-Ravid Fund has made significant advancement on the scope of its activities, and expansion of the students' range of operation characterized with a "Going Global" vision:

International Symposium at Tufts University in Boston

Five promising students from the Friends of Raveh-Ravid Fund were selected and invited by the Institute of Global Leadership (IGL) at Tufts University in Boston to participate in an international symposium about "Global Leadership and International Problem Solving".

The student's stay, full accommodation, hospitality, and participation in the symposium, was made possible owing to the generous contributions of IGL and the donors, the friends of the Fund. The student spent a week and a half in Boston, took active part in the discussions at the roundtable, expanded their horizons and connected with university students from all over the world.

We see great importance in the participation of our students in this symposium, which will widen their horizons. Both IGL and the Friends of Raveh-Ravid Fund share the desire to begin a mutual, fruitful and long lasting cooperation.

"Active Citizens" Project and cooperation with the British Council in Israel

The British Council chose The Friends of Raveh-Ravid Fund to lead the "Active Citizens" project, aimed at promoting an inter-cultural dialogue and creating a community of "global leaders".

Through this cooperation, leading students from the Friends of Raveh-Ravid program will be selected each year to enroll in a series of professional training designed by the British Council aiming at increasing the contribution of community leaders towards achieving sustainable development both locally and globally.

It also encourages peer-to-peer relations across cultural, geographic and political boundaries via a lively online social network of participants.

Cooperation with Moshe Fund

Cooperation with JDC Israel (Joint Israel)

Owing to the Fund's strong ties and promising cooperation with the Joint, our students become active partners in promoting various social projects in the Northern periphery of Israel.

We highly appreciate your support of the Fund, which enables us to create a unique opportunity and a better future for young promising leaders form the North of Israel.
