The Israeli Social Model is a non-profit organization
dedicated to sustainable social change through impact
scaling, by “social export”.
We bring added value to our partners, through:
1. Identifying successful social models
2. Connecting between social organization in Israel and abroad
3. Consultation, support and management of social replication
models in Israel and abroad
4. Designing social technology products for export.
The organization does not develop social models and is not in
itself a social exporter. We create partnerships with and
between organizations interested in social replication and
Social Start Up Nation
Imagine Israel as a social start-up nation. A leading social exporter. The Israeli "Elem"coffee centers for youth in distress in Rome, New York or Australia. The model developed by the "Paamonim" association for long term comprehensive solutions to debt and poverty empowering Hurricane Katarina victim families in New Orleans."Yad Sarah" medical equipment lending centers in South Africa, the "Taglit" birthright program for dispersed Armenians or Greeks throughout the world… Did you know that "Perach", the Israeli mentoring program, is implemented in Sweden, and there are Tapuah education centers in Africa, and an Agahozo Shalom school has been established in Ruwanda, a replication of the Israeli Yemin Ord Youth Village?
We believe that promotion of social export will also cause social change in Israel –promoting criteria for excellence, increase of sources of funding, improvement of replication and effectiveness and more…
Can Israel become a social start-up nation?

Tikun Olam – Making the world a better place – is the concept that Jews must repair what is wrong with the world, and help others, even those beyond the circle of the community, the State and the Jewish People.
Over the past decade, the former president of the United States has led the message of global social replication and responsibility through "The Clinton Global initiative" connecting between Mega- corporations and social organizations for the good of the developing world
"Nearly every problem has been solved by somebody somewhere, and yet we can’t seem to replicate it everywhere else.” Bill Clinton
Social replication is repeated or simultaneous operation of a social model – a program, initiative, organization, service, social business. A prototype usually precedes the replication, and the replicated factors are derived from this.
Social replication can be performed in a variety of ways:
1. Replication within the units of an organization.
2. The establishment of expansion of a network.
3. Awarding a “license” for operation
4. Adopting the social model as a pilot for development
5. Viral replication
The Israeli Social Model’s core skills are social replication.
The organization deals in social replication in Israel and abroad. We deal in social replication of social successes and in the promotion of replication. The more the “market” for Israeli social export expands, the better the replication and social influence . will become.
What we have learned from social export to Haiti
In March 2010 the fifth delegation of Natan – the Israeli Network for International Disaster Relief left for Haiti to work at refugee camps established after the earthquake. Shahaf Pripez, a youth leader and coordinator with Mifalot, Hapoel Tel Aviv Football Club’s Social and Education Project, which specializes in social action through football, joined the group. An educational action framework was set up over two weeks, for 150 youth, drawing the interest of hundreds of people. After these two weeks, Johnny, the local youth leader, began to lead the youth accompanied by Shahaf, until he achieved independence. Professionals believe that this action was of great importance in the social and emotional rehabilitation of the refugee camp, and served as a very effective means of prevention against post traumatic stress syndrome. Despite the clear potential, the program was not expanded to the hundreds of other refugee camps where it could have been initiated. The cost was not unattainable. A yearly wage for a leader + equipment for an entire camp would cost about $1500 per year. A training system for training and operating for hundreds of thousands of children and youth throughout hundreds of camps could have been established at the cost of $2 million. This is not such a great sum relatively speaking, or even absolutely speaking as compared to Haiti’s emergency budgets. Despite this, no organization which could operate successful export of this program could be found. This lost opportunity was one of the things that brought Nir Sarig to serve as the head of a delegation for the establishment of the Israeli Social Model Association
