Who We Are

The '710 West' initiative was born to rebuild personal and national resilience among women and men who were evacuated from their homes and lost their livelihoods in the war. The initiative does this by creating economic stability - assistance in placement and integration at new jobs.


For the benefit of the project, a multidisciplinary team was established that provides answers to the evacuees and the recruiting companies. Experienced professional women from the fields of human resources and welfare accompany evacuees, and women from the business world adapt precise models of work for the employing companies.


The team provides broad, flexible, and customized support - both for the recruiting organizations and evacuees. The team works until creating a complete match and successful integration of every one of the job seekers.


The initiative is philanthropic, established by the social entrepreneur Hana Rado, founder of Amutat51, in collaboration with the Eshkol Regional Council, the Merage Foundation, and Kibbutz Sa'ad.

Hana Rado is a senior member of the advertising industry in Israel and has focused her resources in recent years on promoting employment for young men and women in the periphery and on the excellence of women in the business and management sectors. In this framework, she founded Group19, the Supersonas organization, and Amutat51.
