Community Involvement at Electra

Community Involvement at the Electra Group (Israel)
 

At Electra Group we believe in business-community collaboration, and work to develop and establish long-term relationships in the community in which we live and work.

 

 

Our community involvement entails the donation of resources and the personal involvement of our employees. Throughout the year, all Electra Group employees are invited to take part in the activities, lead collaborative enterprises, and participate in developing community involvement.
There are two main themes that tie between the various activities: helping handicapped populations and physical activity. We offer our employees several different volunteer options with the professional assistance of Zionism 2000, joining several community partners that work with handicapped populations:
Special Olympics NPO – founded out of the belief that people with mental handicaps can, with the right guidance and support, enjoy and better themselves by participating in individual and group sports. Through consistent and competitive training, people with mental handicaps develop skills in various athletic disciplines and improve their physical, mental and social health.  Athletic activity is a way to overcome stigmas prevailing among the public regarding accepting others that are different.

 

 

The community centers
Ministry of Social Services operates government housing facilities for people with  mental developmental disabilities (mental retardation) with different levels of performance nationwide.
Routine activity within these housing facilities includes a range of activities and courses in the field of recreation, art and sports leisure, up to photography, theater, computers, nature and more - which community centers operate in dormitories across the country.
Activities are adjusted to the capabilities and performance levels of the various occupants. Electra volunteers will join instructors of the courses at the housing framework and will assist in operating the courses throughout the day.
ILAN Center for Handicapped Adults, Tel Aviv – The ILAN Center for Handicapped Adults in Tel Aviv was founded to address the needs of severely handicapped adults that do not fit in to any other rehabilitative framework. The day center addresses the physical, social and cognitive needs of the center’s members. They participate in art, computer, psychodrama, and other activities. The center works with professional personnel and volunteers.
Community involvement is rewarding for the company and its employees: The Electra Group benefits by connecting to its values, strengthening its ties with the community and business partners, and bettering the social environment in which it operates, and the employees benefit from a sense of fulfillment and meaning, an outlet for various talents, and a sense of belonging and identification with the group.
