AIPAC Policy Conference
This year our executive director, Tomer Malchi took part in AIPAC’s policy conference. The AIPAC Policy Conference is the largest gathering of America's pro-Israel community. At CultivAid we think that being pro-Israel should including promoting a greater role of Israel in International development. We understand the potential of Israel to support the development of other countries and in particularly support the local capacity building in agriculture and water knowledge.
During the 3-day event, we had the chance to meet with various leaders of the American – Jewish community, get to know a wide variety of organization, meet with Congressmen and their staff and with all these people we had the chance to discuss our activities in Ethiopia. Our trip to the US congress was led by David Goldberg and Suzi Coleman who are supporting the establishment of a project with the Beta Israel of North Shewa where CultivAid is providing technical support and field level evaluation.
