The Fund for Keshatot Children [reg. no. 580540532, recognized charity, clause 46, Israel Income Tax Authority] was established in 2011 by parents of autistic children who studied at the Keshatot Center in order to assist autistic children in their schools.The fund seeks contributions for complementary para-medical treatments [which are not among the therapies and treatments provided by the Ministry of Education], therapeutic and technological equipment and infrastructure improvement. The fund also organizes enrichment and recreational activities provided by local volunteers. Because the Fund for Keshatot Children is run solely by volunteers, all monies raised go directly towards these activities.

The Keshatot ("Rainbows" in hebrew) Center is a multi-regional magnet school serving 89 children age 3 – 13 on the autism spectrum in 2 kindergartens and 11 elementary school classes. These children graduate after the 6th grade and continue in Harim or Bareket high schools.

The Harim ("Mountains" in hebrew) high school, is a multi regional school in Givaat Ada, serving 60 adolescents age 13-21 on the autism spectrum.

The Fund is currently raising donations for this school year's therapy sessions at the Harim high school, including animal therapy and and a more active "kung Fu" theraphy. Both therapis are provided to all teh pupils, enabling them to exersize and enjoy activities outside the classroom. It is important to state that for many of the high school's puplis, the therapies they receive in school, are their only therapies. So by every hour added to each pupil is an amazing gain and advancement. 

We are also raising funds for a Snoezelen (Multi-Sensory) therapy room at the Harim high school and lots of activities and outings.

Pleas ejoin us and support or amazing youngesters and provide them with the best year possible.

As spring turns to summer, we have agreed to assist the Harim highschool, by funding the shading of a playground, which will enable the children to play outside on their breaks even on sunny summer days. The shading (costing $20,000) will be ready by July and will serve the scholl and children for many years.

The Fund is currently raising donations for next school year's therapy sessions, as well as for a  Snoezelen (Multi-Sensory) therapy room at the Harim high school and lots of activities and outings.
