United Way Israel, Matan, envisions an Israel where all people have the opportunity for a better life. The aim is to create a strong civil society in which giving and community involvement is a way of life. Partnerships were established allowing corporations, businesses, foundations and private donors to fulfil specific community investment goals. Matan brings partners together in several fields; education welfare and health.
Their main education program is Password for Every Pupil. It is an advanced educational program available to local educational personnel in both Hebrew and Arabic. The program brings together mayors, local regional council heads, education teams, pupils and parents to share in the learning experience, while aiming to reduce the digital divide.
