In Israel, two working parents is generally the rule, especially in the less affluent areas. As a result, many young children from these homes suffer from serious neglect. In order to make a difference in the lives of these children, positive intervention must be started before the first grade.
Therefore, we founded six day care centers, and seventeen kindergartens. Along with offering trustworthy quality day care, we also offer supervised safe transportation and a professional staff that specializes in recognizing and treating children suffering from more serious problems.
When our schools were founded, Israel was still a poor country. In the 90's, affluence increased. However, once again, today there is financial crisis and increasing poverty. The only food available to many children is bread and margarine. Without proper nutrition a child cannot learn.
Our school lunch program serves hot meals to hundreds of children and toddlers every day. For many, this is their only daily meal. Sadly, some will take part of their food home to help feed siblings or family. We can only do so much but with your help, we can more and we wish to do more.
