Meet Gilat Lagman

Micro lending, Macro Impact

We want to open a Ninja Warrior class for children and are asking for a loan to buy the equipment.

My business - My spark

Our center has become a warm home for all the neighborhood children who do not have similar solutions in the Haredi community. The classes combine the most talented and professional trainers for each class with very professional equipment that develops each exercise and technique.

A few more words

My name is Gilat and I am an ultra-Orthodox convert, mother of six children and live in Givat Ze’ev, Jerusalem. I served in the army and then studied Education and sports. For 5 years I managed the informal education in my neighborhood community center. I believe in educating kids via sports!
