The African Hebrew Development Agency was created as a humanitarian and human capacity building arm of Kibbutz Shomrei HaShalom in Dimona, Israel. The directorship is able to draw upon kibbutz members and independent sources for its teams of consultants and technical assistants. In the locales where we initiate projects a local directorship is established to oversee activities and projects to insure projects reflect the interest of those being served.
