Teach a Student to Fish…

Vision for Israel has been giving much support to Arazim, a special-needs school attended by children with mental, emotional, and behavioral problems.  Many of these children come from low socio-economic backgrounds, and the situations in their homes are often so bad that they arrive at school without having had anything to eat.

It is important for us to ensure that these children don’t go hungry and are able to study and advance through both their studies and their personal challenges.

We joined forces with the school in a nutritional-security project for the children that has been running throughout the school year.  We donate food supplies, which arrive at the home-economics class, and the children spend two hours preparing and enjoying the food.  This way, the children fill their empty stomachs as well as learning valuable life skills.

We are so pleased to be part of this important project!
