Literacy Program funded by The Jerusalem Foundation as a part of Yad Rachel Activity

We are very grateful for the continued funding The Jerusalem Foundation is providing for our Literacy Program.

In the current information age, an individual’s literacy level has a critical impact on a person’s ability to integrate into society, to contribute to it and enjoy the contribution from it. Literacy skills, including the ability to acquire language, social competence, etc. and to use it correctly, begins to form at an early age. As a child grows up, we witness a remarkable evolutionary process, rich and multi-dimensional. Studies show that when it comes to literacy skills, the children problematic social backgrounds struggle wit the  most significant gaps and their success levels in the field of literacy are much lower then those of the children from a high socio-economic background.

The combination of the educational component, emotional component and extra studies, as part of a treatment offered by Yad Rachel, allows families to move forward  with confidence creative and to grow up productive members of the society.

Together with The Jerusalem Foundation we have established the assisted learning room in Yad Rachel main building in Jerusalem. This room has a magical atmosphere where we are able to give children the opportunity to get to know the world of letters, reading and writing more closely. Our teachers have worked hard on the design and planning of the room and of course on preparing learning materials and activities to help kids make the most out of the space offered. The children will find here a place to read, to play, to create works of art on issues related to the stories they are being taught at the moment and on and on. Environment is  comfortable here, neatly kept room and it’s good arrangement helps children to feel respect and appreciation for the activities that take place there, and even for themselves when they take part and make success in the learning process.

We are always happy to thank our donors and partners from The Jerusalem Foundation!

Fishing rods, not the fish

As every holiday, this Pesach DSPG workers have already met for the packing of food packages, which were a few days ago sent to Yad Rachel centers around the country. The trucks brought us lots of good good things, donated and packed with great love.

DSP Group company and employees partner with us for a decade. Not only they give us the “fish”, but also generously generously provide our children with “fishing rods”. Beyond food supplies they are concerned about financing educational programs for children and their family members.

In Yad Rachel we know, that only with the help of the best quality education we can break the cycle of poverty and enable our children a better future.

It is a privilege for us to be accompanied by the company’s employees, for whom the words justice and kindness are not just words, but accompanied with deeds full of love, caring and respect.

This Passover Yad Rachel children will be happy and full not only wit the meal, but also with the knowledge.
