Subsidizing after school care for children from a Low Socio-economic Background

Extended School Day Program- 23 Schools






Project: The Extended School Day program aims to provide additional
learning and enrichment for students from 23 different schools

Objective: The program aims to support and enrich children from low
socio-economic areas educationally and socially, and to
provide them with a safe environment while their parents are
at work.

Need: Elementary schools in south Tel Aviv and Yafo have low socio-economic
ranks; the parents of these children are in low-skilled jobs requiring long hours; consequently
they are not able to be present for their children until later in the evening,
several hours after school usually finishes. For financial reasons, many of
these families do not utilize the afternoon care programs or activities
which are available elsewhere in the city. Children therefore go home
alone, unsupervised, or generally without adequate support.

Impact:  Strengthening the foundations for future academic
success and improves access to opportunity.

Requested Donation (overall): $9,300,000 USD

Requested Donation (per school): $400,000 USD
