Kol Ha Isha ("Women's Voice") "is a grassroots organisation run by an ethnically diverse staff and board of directors. Together with volunteers and interns, the Kol Ha Isha community includes Ethiopian, Mizrachi, Ashkenazi, Russian and eventually also Palestinian women. Since its beginnings in 1994, the organisation has been striving to develop and promote a feminist, multicultural model of social change and to empower women by providing a variety of services and culturally enriching activities that address the self-defined needs of the participating women. Women come together at Kol ha Isha to engage in dialogue, to initiate and/or participate in empowerment groups, to expose each other to various ideas and cultures, to advocate for their common issues, to advance their diverse agendas and to learn from one another. The Heinrich Boell Foundation has supported Kol Ha Isha since 1995." [1]
