Delivery

BTF works to minimize social and economic gaps between the center and the periphery. Our interventions are based on three principles:

  • Every community has capacities, untapped capabilities and assets to deliver systemic change.
     

  • Change needs to be evidence-based, using a mix of hard and soft data.
     

  • Change is delivered through the collective efforts of a diverse network of organizational partnerships.

To help organizations and municipalities achieve systemic change, we provide analysis, planning and project delivery services based on decades of experience from on-the-ground project delivery in Israel, the US and the UK.
