Micro lending, Macro Impact

In the wake of the recent war outbreak, students nationwide encounter obstacles in maintaining regular attendance at school. The loan will empower us to extend our reach, ensuring that we can assist more individuals in need. Amid schools struggling to operate fully and parents facing financial and emotional stress, our organization steps in to provide the essential assistance they need. We are committed to delivering vital support and addressing educational gaps that could impede academic progress. 

My business - My spark

Our goal is to inspire and bolster students who may be teetering on the brink of dropping out, guiding them toward optimal performance in school. We actively connect with students at every stage of this journey, diligently working to pinpoint the most effective support framework. This comprehensive approach includes tutoring to fortify core subjects, employing remedial teaching techniques, and, perhaps most crucially, fostering a sense of self-worth and personal competence.

A few more words

For the past 15 years, I’ve served as the Director of Studies, specializing in dropout prevention and strategies to boost academic motivation. Working alongside a dedicated team of highly skilled teachers, we adhere to the ABC model, pioneered by Eilat Ish Shalom. Over these years, we’ve had the privilege of reintegrating hundreds of students into a fulfilling and joyous school life.
