What is SHATIL?

A:

SHATIL was founded in 1982 to complement NIF's grant making by providing grantees and other social change organisations with hands-on capacity-building and training in the basics of non-profit management.  More than 1000 organisations currently receive assistance from SHATIL.

With more than 100 ethnically diverse professionals working in Jerusalem, Haifa, Be'er Sheva, Lod, and the ‘Triangle’, SHATIL embodies a bottom-up community organising approach, reaching out to constituencies on the economic and geographic periphery, helping them create and run their own programmes when existing institutions fail to act, and maximising their strength by building coalitions among them.
