Our History

In just a few short years, The ManKind Project Israel has taken great strides in establishing a vibrant community in our part of the world. We are proud to be one of eight developing regions (along with Costa Rica, Mexico, the Netherlands, Nordic, China, India, and Central Africa) working to bring this work to even more men interested in becoming better husbands, fathers, and friends.

And while the following events highlight our short but exciting history, we look forward to the many developments yet to come. From hosting our first NWTA to starting additional I-Groups across the country, get in touch to see how you can help write the next chapter with us.
