The Upper Galilee Seniors Organization


The Upper Galilee Seniors Organization (GSO) was founded in 1993 and is a non-profit organization. The organization provides services to 2600 seniors in 29 kibbutzim as well as to other residents in the regions who participate in the activities.

The mission of the Galilee Seniors Organization is to provide care and empowerment to the elderly population of Israel's northern periphery, residents of rural communities. GSO's work is aimed at enabling the region's citizens to receive the services they need in their familiar surroundings, to be significant and active members of their communities, and to promote a healthy view of old age or disability as a natural and integral part of the life cycle.


 The organization is active next to the Tel-Hai College, in close collaboration with the Faculty of Humanities and Social      Sciences, and the Tel-Hai staff is involved in lectures and provides consultancy. In addition it is in very close contact with  the organisations in the Galilee that provide support to the disabled persons in both equipment and relevant information.  GSO runs a wide range of programs and activities in the Centre as well as with people of the communities surrounding Tel-  Hai, including the center for medical devices, giving them support and guidance.


 GSO can organise the practical workshop in the Galilee or other location where their activities and services take place. 

 GSO has the venue for organising workshops and conferences, as well as access to the auditorium and lecture rooms at the  Tel-  Hai College. GSO can organise workshops content-related supervision and has the capability to provide professional  supervision of the workshops, both in Israel and in Poland.

 GSO can provide experts to participate in seminars in Poland and the Polish institute (PAKD) can make use of the experts'  knowledge and experience concerning various aspects of the proposed activities. GSO, because of its involvement in the  community and the relations with other agencies in the Galilee, can find the people who will be able to compliment GSO  experts according to the needs of the Polish institute (PAKD).
