SHALVA is committed to attaining the highest standards of management and transparency in all we do. We hold ourselves to a strict criterion.
International Standards of Management Certification
SHALVA's operations in Israel have achieved ISO 9001/2000 recognition and certification for compliance with the highest international standards of quality management. SHALVA is the first Israeli organization of its kind to attain this status.
Midot's Seal of Outstanding Effectiveness
SHALVA is the first and only non-profit organization in the field of special needs to receive Midot’s Seal of Outstanding Effectiveness. There are only ten organizations within several years that have received this stamp of approval.
The Seal of Outstanding Effectiveness comes after a full-year evaluation by the Israeli organization Midot, which strives to promote impact and effectiveness within non-profit organizations. They have assessed SHALVA in all of the following areas: planning and performance, learning and participation, human resources, and financial management.
The seal is granted to organizations based on their level of effectiveness, not just as a center of excellence but, beyond that, also making a positive impact on society. The Seal of Outstanding Effectiveness is a reflection of our ability to improve the lives of children with special needs and their families, as well as our capacity to create social value through our outreach and advocacy work within the world at large.
