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 Dror 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 Dror ("Freedom" in hebrew) high school, is a multi regional school in Pardes Hanna, serving 45 adolescents age 13-21 on the autism spectrum.

At Keshatot School, we have been funding para-medical treatments, including behavioral analysis, yoga, rhythm and theater. Additionally we have continued to support the "smart classroom" project, aiding with iPads, apps and additional infrastructure. 

At the Harim high-school, were many of the Keshatot children move up to, the new occupational training center is being erected on site. The center, will provided our autistic kids a safe and stable environment in which they can learn and practice their work skills, as they get closer to finishing school. As you can see in the pictures, the center is at its finishing stages and will start working within the next few weeks.


At the Dror high school, we have received several plans for the new playground, appropriately fitted to the age of the students (13-21). We are currently raising the 400,000nis ($115,000) for the projects. As you can see in the picturs, the current state of the yard is sad.

The school year started on September 1st, after a short 2 week vacation. Just in time for the new school year, we provided new therapy equiptment for the Multi-Sensory room (Snoezelen) and additional games and therapy equiptment. The Keshatot School's staff requested us to assist with new chairs and tables for the classes, kindergartens and therapy rooms, and as you can see, we got the best for the children. All three projects cost together $16,000, all funds were donated by our great supporters.

At the Harim high-school, were many of the Keshatot children move up to, we are working on a new occupational treaning center, which will provied our autistic kids a safe and stable environment in which they can learn and practice their work skills, as they get closer to finishing school. The total project's proce is 300,000nis ($80'000) and we have raised all the funds. As you can see in the pictures, the project is already being constructed.

Looking Forward
Together with the Keshatot School, we are planning to convert a large 120 sq. m./1290 sq ft second floor balcony to a climate-controlled, enclosed recreation area. The envisioned new play area will be carpeted with synthetic grass and full of sensory and experiential games and equipment. It will enable the children to play, relax and enjoy their external lessons and recess even during the hot summer days, as well as the few rainy days we get. Faithful friends and supporters of the Keshatot Center, we hope you share our enthusiasm in this project and will contribute to making this vision a reality. [Estimated cost 300,000 NIS].

At the Dror high school we are starting to plan a wonderful new playground and activity center, we will keep you updated on ur progress.

The school year in the special education finishes on August 15th, which helps to keep a stable a nd known environment for most of the children. but during the hot summer months the kids need to enjoy them selves. The Keshatot School, requested that the fund provide for 7 outings and transportation to a local pool, which was hired soley for our children. The amount of effort and responsibility the scholl staff put into the adventure was amazing, with a ratio of one care giver per child. The kids had a blast and loved the pool and the activities. We were more than glad to daonate 15,000 nis (approx $4250) to this venture.

Before the year begins we hope to provide new therapy equiptment for the Multi-Sensory room (Snoezelen) , we will elaborate more once the room has been upgraded. 

At the Harim high-school, were many of the Keshatot children nove up to, we are working on a new occupational treaning center, which will provied our autistic kid a safe and stable environment in which they can learn and practice their work skills, as they get closer to finishing school.

New Activity screens in the Keshatot Playground
The Keshatot Fund purchased two large screens and audio speakers, in a special protective outdoor casing, for the Keshatot school playground. The screens are linked to the iPads used by the children and the school staff, enabling outdoor activities, lessons, “show and tell” of the day’s events and lots of dancing. The children now can enjoy music and songs in the playground, along with the amazing activities, swigs and slides.

Yoga, Movement and Theater Therapies
The Fund for Keshatot Children continues to support and fund reflexology, yoga and movement-dance therapies (which are not provided by the Ministry of Education) for Keshatot school and kindergarten pupils. All three therapies contribute to improved listening and concentration skills, balance and equilibrium, and also provide relaxing physical activity that leads to inner calm and mindfulness.
