Kids Helping Kids Network

There are many ways that children abroad can support the children who benefit from Afikim’s programs, by fundraising through Bar and Bat Mitzvah projects, collecting clothing, and more.

Bar & Bat Mitzvah Projects

Share your simchah with Afikim’s children! Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, anniversaries, and other special events can greatly brighten the lives of Afikim children. We’ll be delighted to discuss ways you can celebrate your special day together with Afikim.
