Activity Report - 2008

In October 2008 New Profile celebrated ten years as an organized movement. As a viable grassroots movement, we proudly count ourselves amongst the organizations working hard for social change in Israel.

During these past ten years certain many aspects of New Profile have not changed. We continue to work out of our homes, without paid staff or an office, and for the most part on a voluntary basis although some small stipends are paid to coordinators of our funded projects. In principle New Profile’s work is achieved through non-hierarchic pairs or groups as a practical means of decentralizing authority, sharing power and building consensus. New Profile operates successfully with individuals assuming responsibility for projects and administrative functions on an almost total non-hierarchical basis. All participation in activities is voluntary and members organize and participate in committees according to their interests, optimizing motivation and engagement. This method has proved successful in a cost effective and efficacious manner.
