About Us

Brit Olam - International Volunteering and Development

Brit Olam – International Volunteering and Development is an Israeli public association established in 2005. Our activities include community-based development programs to reduce poverty and vulnerability in developing countries,
as well as relief and rehabilitation projects in states of humanitarian crises.

Drawing on Israeli expertise in the fields of community development, health, arts and education, agriculture and others,
Brit Olam’s volunteers develop programs for disadvantaged communities around the world, providing them with relevant knowledge and skills so they can create a better future for themselves. With the help and expertise of professional and
non-professional volunteers, Brit Olam helps disadvantaged communities to develop and become independent and sustainable, unreliant on external aid.


Our activities include training and dispatching Israeli volunteers to development projects worldwide; initiating and operating model programs in the fields of education, community health and agriculture in developing countries; relief aid and rehabilitation programs for communities stricken by natural or manmade disasters; and more.

Brit Olam’s programs are operated jointly with local and international development organizations.

Brit Olam – International Volunteering and Development  promotes values of social responsibility, social entrepreneurship and volunteerism. Brit Olam believes that each human maintains the right to exist in dignity and aims to promote a just, inclusive and pluralistic society. To achieve its mission, Brit Olam integrates Israeli volunteers of all communities in developing and cultivating sustainable development programs for the benefit of disadvantaged populations.
