sponsor a child

The “Sponsor a Child” program serves as a platform that enables children who come from disadvantaged families in the city of Beit Shemesh to realize their potential and guide them to succeed in their studies. In this program, Keren Shemesh supports underprivileged families and helps them provide their children with everything they need in order to succeed in school. Furthermore, the foundation assists in the purchase of school supplies, finances for the children the purchase of textbooks, the participation in cultural, sports and school activities as well as school trips and other extracurricular activities. In addition, the foundation provides funding for hot and nutritious meals for each child in the program and allows each child to receive [as needed] didactic / psycho didactic analysis and diagnoses in order to maximize the children’s success regardless of their family’s socioeconomic status. By doing so, each child is given a real opportunity to maximize his / her potential, thus opening the door for academic achievement and optimal integration into Israeli society.
