Projects and Partners in Sharing our Knowledge
KKL-JNF has partners and friends worldwide who share its vision of advancing harmony between people and their environment in Israel and around the world. As Israel's largest green organization, it initiates projects that have both local and global impact. KKL-JNF offices in countries throughout the world serve as a bridge that creates a global network for protecting the environment and promoting projects in the fields of ecology, water, research and development, forestry, international cooperation, and more. Visitors to Israel from abroad often make a point of visiting projects funded by international friends of KKL-JNF, seeing for themselves how the world is in fact a global community.
