Most of Assaf's teamwork is based on volunteers. At present, there are more than 80 volunteers active in our various teams. Consequently, we attribute great importance to providing professional and personal guidance to each and every volunteer. Each  of them receives training, accompaniment and guidance before beginning to work and in the course of their work, in all our projects.
