From Sophie Ablett NIF Fellow 2019

The NIF study tour was such a valuable trip. Between meeting so many NIF grantees and NIF staff members, I feel like I’ve come away with a comprehensive insight into how NIF impacts civil society in Israel. For me personally, it was hugely invigorating to meet so many inspiring women; their attitudes, positivity and energy are values I hope to emulate through the fellowship and beyond.’

From Our Chairman Clive Sheldon QC

As 2019 comes to a close, it is fair to say we have lived through a year of political uncertainties and large-scale shifts. As we digest the results of the general election here in the UK and consider what Israel going to the polls again in March 2020 might bring, it is clear to me that this is the time for civil society to step up.
