Challenge

Countless citizens of all religious and ethnic backgrounds and especially Bedouins living in villages in the Negev region in the south and Druze living in the north are not aware of the rights and benefits to which they are entitled by law. These range from social security, health, tax benefits and other rights. Part of the problem is related to language (understanding information and being able to communicate in Hebrew); the other is not being able to physically access Israeli ministry offices.

Solution

YEDID's Mobile Rights Center helps to educate clients about the gamut of their legal rights; assisting people in navigating the bureaucracy of the country in order to secure maximum benefits. By literally coming to them - and offering them access to this information with the help of an Arabic speaker -- we help them to overcome the bureaucratic, language and distance barriers that previously stood in their way.

Long-Term Impact

This year, the mobile unit will help thousands of people to access their legal rights, saving them money and improving the quality of their lives. The mobile unit is a cost-effective way to serve a broad social and geographical range, and to collect valuable information on the needs of vulnerable populations.
