Abstract

This study examines coping strategies for female immigrants from developing countries (Northeast India and Peru) to a developed western country, Israel. Based on the dramatic cultural differences the “Shavei Israel” organization provided economic and administrative support for the foundation and administration of a multisystem employment project for women the organization helped emigrate from those countries. For 5 years, 2008-2013, only women who were strongly motivated managed to overcome many obstacles and reach the finishing line, thus acquiring a profession that is in demand. The paper relies on four theories which are the base of a complex set of processes stimulate, direct and preserve human behaviour – innovating and renewing, and mainly moving forwards. This study will be an analysis of the process of managing the project, its ramifications on the immigrants’ incorporation into their professions and Israeli society. Results and conclusions will be presented. The main message of this study is: creative management as a key to success.
