We believe that quick-fixes just don’t work in the developing world. Therefore we use a long-term intervention method that looks at a community as a whole, and addresses issues such as education, agriculture, health and women’s empowerment in a holistic way.
We want to learn from those whom we also want to help. Therefore our projects are led by local staff and community leaders, enhanced and enriched by the work of our volunteers. We believe that changing the world means changing our own society and the ways in which we live and think, as much as helping impoverished people in developing countries.
The University of Haifa offers a new Master's Degree in Jewish Social and Environmental Sustainability, including an internship in Zambia under the guidance of Israeli partner NGO Tevel b’Tzedek. The curriculum offers coursework in the fields of Judaism, social justice, the environment, and the connections and balances between them. This track will be open to international students as well as Israeli students. The students will study for two semesters in Israel, and in the third, those interested will specialize within the organization ‘Tevel b’Tzedek' (in Zambia).
Tevel can organize special volunteer opportunities for groups, organizations, federations, and more. Please contact us if you are interested in having Tevel design a volunteer program for your group, including hands-on experience in creating sustainable change for rural communities in combination with Jewish learning.
As part of our commitment to education and professional development, we offer internships to bachelor’s and master’s students from universities in Israel and around the world. These internships provide an opportunity for students to learn about an NGO's inner workings and gain hands-on experience in project planning and execution, as well as research and evaluation. We are open to tailoring an internship according to the skills and interests of the candidate, in addition to the NGO’s needs. Most internships last about 3 months and can be completed in Israel or Zambia, providing a unique cross-cultural learning experience. Please write us for more information!
