Tasks of the Programme Office
The State of North Rhine-Westphalia lends its support by means of various programmes to out-of-school youth exchanges, to school partnerships, to scholarship holders and to teachers who are committed to fostering exchange activities with Israel. The Programme Office is primarily concerned with the following:
- Presenting the North Rhine-Westphalian State's programmes
- Providing an insight into the various initiatives and contacts which already exist at varying levels
- Acting as an advice centre for any citizens, public bodies and NGO's who may be interested
We would hope that this internet portal will offer a significant contribution to laying foundations for new meetings and contacts and maintaining current ones and that the comprehensive source of information will reinforce this objective. Partners and others wishing and endeavouring to become more familiar with the country of Israel and its people should be given encouragement and advice.
The internet portal is intended to form an instrument for discussion and exchange of ideas and experiences.
