In a joint venture with different entities from Israel and the Dominican Republic, Y.A. Maof is developing a targeted wastewater treatment project that combines an environmental education program and community outreach.
As part of The University of Meaning’s program of the pontifical education organization Scholas Occurrentes, Y.A Maof is developing an educational program to encourage green entrepreneurship among youth in disadvantaged neighborhoods connected to the U.N Sustainable Development Goals.
The goal of the program is ultimately to transform youth into ‘Agents of Change’ and to bring a positive effect on their communities.
Y.A Maof offers a range of courses and specializations on environmental issues to various target audiences in Latin America and the Caribbean, including educators, environmental and technology experts, and university students.
The educational programs are built with the goal of transferring knowledge to local community members.

b. The Water Pact Forum founded by Y.A. Maof and Scholas Ocurrentes (pontificial organization of the Vatican(,in order to provide a swift response to the acute shortage of clean drinking water in many communities worldwide. The Forum is based on a document of instructions of Pope Franciscus to Laudato si. with a clear goal – to ensure the basic right and provide a cup of clean water a day for every person.
c.We are accomplishing this through cooperation that enables us access to identifying needs the world over, utilizing practical technological solutions, drawing on global resources for needy communities and a robust system of education, in order to sustain implementation in the field for the coming years. 2022 is the Forum’s launch year – We invite you build bridges that will fills cups.
Few years from now, low income communities will get the tools and power to make real change in their lives. Imagine Solar power, imagine clear water and clean streets, imagine the eyes of a child witnessing amazing changes in his neighborhood led by the young people of his community. The knowledge needed for this change is power. We have the knowledge.
We believe that a major part of discovering our meaning lies within aligning our inner light with the environment, and paving new paths to live in harmony with our common home – thus protecting the planet. We fulfill our mission by expanding our global responsibility for the aid of communities living in challenging social economics surroundings.
Harnessing the power of technology
We will contact young open minded people with the leadership of Scholas network, we will listen thoroughly to their local needs and will harness green Israeli and global knowhow and technologies to help them improve their lives and the lives of members in their communities by sharing the knowhow and methods they were taught. Our goal is to create a strong impact on the local ecosystem – more employment, impact on the education and access to an ecosystem that combines: corporates, universities, startups, government and investment.
