Follow Israel Radio on
How does a twelve year old change the face of Israeli soccer?
When a university student rethinks student living, what happens?
How does a small group of volunteer photographers turn into the next big thing in Israeli media?
For years, the world gobbled up news stories in Israel through various large news agencies, but not one of them was Israeli, and virtually all used Arab assistants.
Amotz Eyal, a young adult fresh out of university, changed that when he created Tazpit. From a tiny group of volunteers, Tazpit now serves as a news agency and a foreign press service, and runs a summer internship program for budding journalists.
Within two short years, Tazpit has already made waves and prickled the necks of large internationally recognized agencies.
Tune in to meet this incredibly energetic young Israeli as he shares stories of changing lives by choosing to make a difference.
