The first social ship in Israel – Topaz and Mafrashim – arrived after a two-month cruise from the Netherlands and anchored at noon in Herzliya Marina.
There is no more funding but the first milestone behind us.
Good luck to all the entrepreneurs and partners and the vision: 5 such ships in the next 6 years when the State of Israel is a partner in their operation for disadvantaged populations in exploiting the sea resource to treat and cultivate them.
When Tamar Alkobi finished her national service, she decided not to take a trip around the world, as is customary among her peers, but to participate in a volunteer project in Africa.

“They are women of all ages, from 18 to 100,” says Alkobi, “single mothers, including war refugees, widows, unemployed, uneducated, AIDS patients – all of them have a daily survival struggle. , The local language, so that we communicated mainly through dance, movement and creativity, and every meeting with them was accompanied by hugs, joy and dancing, we were amazed by the modesty that characterizes their lives and their homes: all they have are women who do not have too much, But they have everything, they are happy in part and have the ability to give, despite the shortage. “
