Dear Supporters of the Ariela Foundation,

 We continue to be extremely grateful and appreciative of your donations to the Star Program which now operates in three separate municipalities (Ness Tziona, Tel Aviv – Jaffa and Gedera) where it is changing the lives of four groups of middle school and high school students of Ethiopian origin. Through your donations, you are helping to improve the lives of dozens of young Ethiopian Jews that will become future role models for their community.

 Throughout the first quarter of 2012, Ariela continued to deliver dozens of different activities within the framework of the Star Program including weekly after school science workshops, weekly field orienteering workshops, weekly small group tutorial lessons, weekly self-empowerment workshops, parenting workshops, light meals for participants, dozens of one on one tutoring/mentoring sessions, overnight field trips, enrichment activities, guest volunteer lectures regarding life skills, material assistance for educational supplies and giving back to the community activities.

 Attached you will also find some of the latest pictures which we hope will illustrate some of the activities and great results we are achieving thanks to your kind help.
