The Jaffa Institute

The Institute for the Advancement of Education in Jaffa (The Jaffa Institute in Israel) was established in 1982 as a private, non-profit, multi-service social agency to create a new reality for thousands of underprivileged Israeli children from Jaffa, South Tel Aviv and Bat Yam.

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, unless intervention is taken.

You are invited to help pack food for the needy living in Jaffa through the Jaffa Institute of Israel and help distribute it with your tour-bus/vehicle. Groups are also invited to coordinate ahead of time to volunteer to paint an after-school center or community shelter.
