Eden Association – Women changing reality

The Eden Association is a non-profit organization that promotes gender equality by initiating and developing educational-therapeutic projects and programs that encourage change and help expand the options available to men and women. The association operates in southern Israel close to the Gaza Strip – in Kibbutz Dorot and Kibbutz Karmia.

אני בוחרת איך חיי יראו,
ואני רוצה חיים טובים.
הכוח נמצא אצלי ואני בוחרת
איך להשתמש בו

I choose what my life will look like, and I want a good life.

I have the power and I choose how to use it.

The association's activities could not have come to fruition without the generous support and long-standing partnership with our community of donors.

We greatly appreciate everything you do for us!


Today I try not to judge myself harshly, to love and accept myself without judgement

The Eden Association bows its head to the victims of the October 7th massacre and the Iron Swords War, and wishes for the safe return home of the abductees, IDF soldiers and all the security forces.


The association has been operating for 30 years in the Gaza periphery in Kibbutz Karmia and Kibbutz Dorot. All our girls in Eden Residential trauma care were evacuated to an alternative location in Jerusalem where we are working to stabilize a treatment and education routine for them in the shadow of the war.

The activity of Eden for life program in Dorot has stopped, and Eden 51 center recently returned to hosting in addition to the content services – you are welcome to come back to visit and host with us.

As always, we are working to renew ourselves even out of the crisis, and are currently establishing two important projects: a community treatment center for women, and documenting the stories of women in the war.

We would appreciate any help.
