Peace of Dates is a collaboration between two non-profit organizations. ZHO from the United Arab Emirates and Hameshakem from Israel. Both organizations offer work to people with a disadvantage in the labor market.
In collaboration with Hadiklaim and Palm Fruits, we are launching a new packaging with two types of dates, packed by the people who work for these organizations.
Hameshakem is Israel’s largest social business, established in 1958 and currently employing 2,700 individuals with disabilities, all of whom enjoy full employer-employee rights.
Hameshakem operates Israel-wide.
Hameshakem believes that every person has the right and ability to realize her or his capabilities and skills, and earn a dignified living.
Hameshakem aims to be the leading organization in the sphere of employment rehabilitation,
integrating individuals with disabilities into every employment framework suited to the capabilities.
Zayed Higher Organization for People of Determination was established in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi on April 19, 2004, corresponding to Safar 29, 1425 AH. It is an umbrella entity that includes all current and future humanitarian care centers and institutions, as well as social services for people of determination in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The organization’s Board of Directors is chaired by His Highness Sheikh Khalid bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The organization includes centers and clubs dedicated to people of determination, and provides integrated services that aim to rehabilitate people of determination in the community. These services include education, vocational training, psychological care and family counseling, therapeutic rehabilitation (assessment, early intervention, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy), as well as educational and athletic support provision.
