Beyachad — The Stella and Yoel Carasso Family Foundation has been working since 2015 for equal opportunities and mobility for diverse populations, by investing in developing and strengthening regional infrastructures and growth engines, at the meeting point between education, technology and employment. This is all in the service of inclusive growth that leads to increased productivity and socioeconomic resilience in Israel, with an emphasis on the Galilee. The Foundation also invests in strengthening Israel as a democratic state in the spirit of the Declaration of Independence. The foundation was founded by Stella and Yoel Carasso and their three children - Dafna, Michal and Oded. The activity of the foundation is in direct continuity to the long-standing philanthropic activity by the family, focusing on empowering the periphery, on scientific and technological education, and engaging the business world to generate social impact.

The Galilee lacks inclusive growth engines for strengthening the region.

The education and vocational training are not adapted to the dynamic and ever-changing labor market.

The industry is failing to grow and advance due to a lack of suitable human capital, applied research, automation, and innovation.

Overarching Objectives

Strengthening the Galilee

by developing its human capital and creating inclusive regional growth engines in education, employment, and industry.

Nurturing Human Capital

via improvement of technical and vocational education and training (TVET), in line with the shifting needs of the labor market, while simultaneously encouraging responsibility within the business sector.

Strengthening the Galilee

Demographic and Geographic Challenges

The diverse Jewish-Arab population, facing many challenges in education, employment, housing and more, alongside the large dispersal of local authorities in Israel, make the promotion of broad cross-sectional changes particularly complex.

Local Assets

The Galilee is characterized by advanced industry (4.0), in addition to innovative agri- food-tech. The link between industry and applied research, innovation, and continuous STEM studies from kindergarten to employment provide an exceptional opportunity for growth in the area.

Initiatives for Inclusive Growth

University in the Galilee, high quality employment at high salaries, accessible public transport, and other initiatives, will bring about regional social-economic development.

Quality of Life

The Galilee is characterized by abounds nature, wide open spaces, community, life of colabarations and the opportunity of bridgingthe gap with neighboring countries.

Education for the Purpose of Nurturing Human Capital

Technological Education and
Quality Professional Training

Education is an asset which promotes social mobility and contributes to the individual, to society and to the economy. However, potential employees turn to academic education rather than technological training, due to an unattractive reputation and lack of awareness of the fact that studying to be a practical engineer has the same "return on investment" as an academic degree in most subjects.

A Dynamic Labor Market and Outdated Systems

The exceptional technological advances we have experienced over recent decades, alongside the Covid pandemic, have changed the labor and training market. In this interdisciplinary world of constant learning at every stage of life, special skills are a necessity. The education systems do not adapt fast enough. The organizational culture in the business sector does not adapt itself to the required changes in the training of new employees, preservation and professional development of existing employees, innovation implementation, and more.

Human Capital and High
Productivity as Engines of Growth

High-quality and diverse human capital is a necessary condition in order to tackle the low productivity and foster growth among advanced industry, high-tech and agri-foodtech in the Galilee and in the rest of Israel.

Deficiency in Public Resources

Despite the public discourse about the importance of training for developing human capital, the government resources dedicated to promoting this topic are limited, the policies are only partially implemented, investment in research and innovation is lacking and there is little cooperation between relevant government offices.

What does success look like?
