MASHAV International Training Courses

About MASHAV - Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs Agency for International Development Cooperation

International development cooperation is a fundamental part of development diplomacy and an inherent part of Israeli foreign policy. MASHAV emphasizes the importance of creating effective partnerships for development implementation of cooperative projects.

MASHAV activities focus on areas in which Israel has a comparative advantage and/or accumulated expertise.

The list of such fields is extensive, including: water resource management and irrigation, desert agriculture and combat of desertification, early childhood education, community development, emergency and disaster medicine, refugee absorption and employment programs, and many, many others. 

Here, at the International School of Agricultural Sciences, we conduct short-term professional training courses in partnership with MASHAV, having a shared commitment of cooperation throughout the implementation. MASHAV extends a hand in partnership wherever Israel’s experience is relevant. 

MASHAV course graduates are invited become part of the worldwide Shalom Clubs.
