Dear Keshatot Children friends,

During these challanging and very sad times, with more than 1400 Israelis killed by the Hamas terror atack and 244 hostages, the Israeli Education system was closed for several weeks, including the special education. The Autistic adulesents of the Harim high school could not attend, due to the war and we took advantage of this difficult period to complete the building of a Snozelan room (Multi-Sensory therapy room) for the students.

Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to provide the children and young adults with an amazing therapy room, which will both enrich them and enable them to manage their feelings and senses.

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.

We are all hoping for better, safer and calmer times, and for the studesnt we support to return to a steady and happy school.
