About Givat Haviva

At GHIS we are building a diverse community of learners who strive to achieve positive social impact towards a just, shared society and peaceful world.

Givat Haviva is a non-profit organization founded in 1949 as the National Education Center
of the Kibbutz Federation. It has since emerged as a pivotal educational center for social justice, dedicated to promoting civic equality, cooperation and social inclusion in Israel and internationally.

Givat Haviva ‘Center for a Shared Society’ serves as an activist agency for cross-community interactions and cooperation. We offer programs in five key areas: municipal and regional partnerships, leadership training and education, public engagement, cultural studies, language immersion, equality and minority rights.

Bringing divided communities together to achieve common goals, extending leadership training, workshops and conferences, we cultivate actionable ideas to foster participatory, cooperative
processes for a socially responsible society.

Givat Haviva is a participating institution in the UNESCO Associated Schools Project in Education for International cooperation and peace.
