Since 1920, WIZO Chaverot in Israel and around the world has made this dream of a free and successful Jewish state become a reality.
In each of our Day Care Centres, schools, youth villages and WIZO Centres, we see the fruits of our labour and efforts in every child and youth’s smile. When we nurture and support each of our children, we build a better, stronger, and more equal and resilient society.
WIZO will remain devoted to the future of Israel. We will continue to be a Pillar of Hope for women, children and youth in Israel. Together, we will continue our sacred mission and raise future generations of empowered Israelis.
