In the Community — September 2018

A group of 11 young adult leaders recently took the trip of a lifetime to Kenya as part of CJP’s Project Inspire, an initiative of our Strategic Israel Engagement team. 

Project Inspire offers young adults the opportunity to witness Israel’s global innovation and grassroots impact up close with the belief that inspired individuals can catalyze meaningful positive change in the world. The group explores how ingenuity and entrepreneurship can combat poverty, tackle injustice, and build a safer and more just world.

The goal of this trip, CJP’s second Project Inspire study tour, was for participants to learn first-hand about Israel’s development work in Kenya. 

Throughout the trip, participants blogged about the experience. Check out all of their posts on!

“In Kenya, it’s easy to get inspired by Israel’s work because it is collaborating with locals on so many projects,” says Aviva Klompas, CJP’s Associate Vice President of Strategic Israel Engagement. “We saw partnerships in food security, water safety, healthcare, community building, and education. Project Inspire offers an incredible opportunity to learn about Israel’s development story and bring that story back to our community in Boston.” 

Since returning, participants have been engaged in their post-trip work. All participants are required to lead an independent community education project to bring the impact of their experience back to Boston.
