The Embassy of Israel organized a program in the capital Monday to familiarize Israel and a training course to Nepalese participants going to Israel for training.
According to the Embassy of Israel, 26 Nepalese being involved in various professions related to Education are leaving for Israel on May 8 Sunday.
They will attend a 11-day long training course on “Pedagogical Innovations” in the Aharon Ofri MASHAV International Educational Training Center (METC-https://metc.mfa.gov.il/) in Ramat Rachel, Jerusalem, Israel.
Israel’s capital city Jerusalem is the biggest city followed by Tel Aviv. Haifa is the third-largest city in Israel that is about 120 kilometers from Jerusalem.
Ambassador Goder apprised about the vivid aspects of Israel and hoped that the participants will use their gained knowledge from the training in Nepal after returning home.
“This is the first group in which all the participants at the training course are from Nepal. In the previous years, one or two participants go to METC for the training in which there will be participants from various other countries,” Israeli Ambassador to Nepal Hanan Goder chitchatted.
MASHAV is Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. METC was established in 1989 by Haigud Society for Transfer of Technology, as a professional affiliate of MASHAV. The METC works in cooperation with Israel’s Ministry of Education.
So far, according to the METC sources, the center has carried out hundreds of training activities until date.
MASHAV maintains contact with former course participants through Shalom Clubs. Over 70 Shalom Clubs worldwide that have been working actively serve as a forum for MASHAV alumni to participate in professional and social activities, embassy said.
