A new school year starts

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 study 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 Harom or Dror highschools.

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

The Dror ("Freedom" in hebrew) high school, is a multi regional school in Pardes Hanna, serving 45 adulecents age 13-21.

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.
