WEPOWER: Encouraging Young Israeli Women to Become Civically Engaged

As a result of grant from the Hadassah Foundation to WEPOWER, young women in Israel with great potential--such as Hadas, a modern Orthodox woman from the town of Omer (above, center), and Kefah, a young Bedouin leader, (above, right)--are being groomed for leadership positions.  As part of the Atidot (Women of the Future) Program, a cohort of young women have learned specific leadership skills, developed a vision for how they will impact society, and were paired with mentors in the public or non profit sectors.  One member of the group, Vered (not pictured) has set her sights on a seat in the Knesset--and was paired with a current female of the Knesset to help her on her way!
