“What unites us as human beings is the aspiration to make the world better, more compassionate, with less conflict, less hate and hardship, and with more tolerance and understanding.” — Elie Wiesel
Darfurian Refugee Program
Using our Beit Tzipora Centers as a model, the Foundation started an after-school program in the fall of 2007 for refugees from the genocide in Darfur who have been given safe haven in Israel. The program, operated through the Bialik-Rogozin School in Tel-Aviv, provides after-school English and Hebrew training, computer courses, tutoring, arts and crafts, and counseling to the children. Language classes and other courses, as well as counseling, are also offered to their parents. By providing these refugees the attention and educational support they so desperately need, the Foundation is extending its efforts related to the genocide in Darfur from advocacy to helping Darfurian children adjust to their new lives in Israel.
