Afikim is a nonprofit organization, established about ten years ago, that strives to provide children at-risk in Israel, and their parents, with tools to help them escape the cycle of poverty, first and foremost through education. Afikim’s unique projects include a comprehensive and holistic approach that helps not only the child, but his family as well.
A growing number of Israel’s children are in danger! Living in extreme poverty, they face the bitter challenges of hunger, want, insecurity and despair. Statistically, their chances for a better future are slim.
But with immediate and drastic intervention, these children, and their families, can be saved! Afikim offers a unique, two-pronged program that works with both disadvantaged children and their parents on a long-term basis, providing the tools they need to break out of the cycle of poverty.
