Eighty eight children on the autism spectrum from the age of 3 to 13 are enrolled in two kindergartens and eleven homeroom classes in the Keshatot [“Rainbow”] Center, a magnet school of the Menashe Regional Council, Israel; which serves the local communities and other communities which lack facilities for autistic pupils.

The Fund for Keshatot Children [reg. no. 580540532, recognized charity, clause 46, Israel Income Tax Authority] was established in 2011 by parents of pupils who study at the Keshatot Center in order to support and expand the work of the center. 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 infra-structure 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 funds raised go directly towards these activities.

At the end of 2016, The Fund for Keshatot Children and the school staff have decided to undertake our most ambitious project: the complete renovation of the school playground and due to our generous donors the renovation of the two kindergarten playgrounds. Now, one year since we started off, the renovation of the school playground was successfully achieved and a wonderful new playground was given to the autistic children. They enjoy a safe, colorful, shaded and FUN playground and it has obviously been a huge success.

Thanks to contributions from you, veteran supporters and members of the Fund for Keshatot Children, large organizations and small businesses, we have raised 80% of the funding for the kindergarten playgrounds (160000nis of 200000nis, [$1= 3.5 shekels]). The bid has been held and we already have the contractor ready for the renovations.

With your help, the Keshatot school children are already playing in a new and stimulating environment and we hope that the kindergarten children will be the next to enjoy a new playground.


We invite all the supporters of the Keshatot School to visit us and see the amazing work done with the children, please feel free to contact us through our website; http://www.ykeshatot.org.il/he/t/1449-english
