VOLUNTEER WITH US

The EWCC is a special place to work for two reasons. The first is immediately visible: we are the only registered NGO in Israel which is run by asylum-seeking women. While NGOs around the world are now trying to find ways to accommodate the unique needs of women in affected populations, we have been providing programming for years designed by women for women.

 

The other reason is that we at the EWCC are a family. We  share in victories together and overcome challenges together. Because we have a small core staff, each individual has a high level of responsibility and an equally high feeling of reward. Though the challenges faced by refugee and asylum seeking women in Israel is great, our resilience and determination motivates those around us to stay strong and keep moving forwards.

The Women's Center is very grateful to all its volunteers and individuals who have donated their time and efforts to the Center. Without their help, the Center could not operate at the standard that it does today.

Volunteers can help with English and Hebrew teaching, childcare and informal English learning for children, leading short-term workshops on health, parenting, and more, or even volunteering at our weekly clinic filling out RSD Refugee Status Determination forms in English or Hebrew.

We also offer internships in the following areas, based on availability:

  • Program Coordination Intern

  • Volunteer Coordination Intern

  • Childcare Intern

  • Grant Writing and Fundraising Intern

  • Events Planning Intern

Please read below of some personal experiences of those involved in our various activities. We would love to have you join our team. If you're interested, please send us a message or email us at eritreanwomenscenter@gmail.com

Stefanie

My name is stefanie I have started volunteering at the Eritrean women center a few months ago, and I feel that it is the least we can do as a society in order to empower vulnerable communities. Nutritional confidence. The very basics.  It fills my heart with joy knowing that a few more families will have warm meals and food for the next week. And when you get to know the people, you cannot stay apathetic to this. Mutual aid  and community sense are the future to a better world to live in, and the best chance for out society to grow positively.

Eritrean lives in `Tel Aviv, Israel. Helping out at the center has been a great experience. I had volunteered before and found EWCC is amazing because when all the clients here receive service by their mother language and they feel like coming home. There are so many women that need personal help, and no one would be better to support them than us (Eritreans)- who know what they are going through. I really believe that my time is spent with for a great cause with great value."
