About the organization:

The Jaffa Institute was established in 1982 as a private, non-profit, multi-service social agency to assist the city of Jaffa’s severely disadvantaged children and their families. Their mission is to provide educational, nutritional, therapeutic, and social enrichment programs that assist children in developing positive attitudes and skills to break the cycle of inter-generational poverty in the impoverished communities of Jaffa, South Tel Aviv, and Bat Yam in Israel.

Residing in poverty stricken neighborhoods where the majority of parents and caregivers are unemployed, these children are physically and emotionally undernourished and too often suffer from neglect and/or abuse. Violence, crime, and poverty are the norm and what these children can expect for their futures, in the absence of intervention.

The dangerous elements of street life penetrate into this void, luring children with promises of belonging, acceptance, fitting in and being loved. Once a child has left school for the streets, it is very difficult to bring them back. This organization is working to create a new reality for thousands of these underprivileged children.
