About Afikim

Established over a decade ago, in memory of Tova and Shamai Hanel z”l, the Afikim Family Enrichment Association serves a vital role within Israeli society. With increasing numbers of children at risk of poverty, neglect or abuse, Afikim’s primary aim is to work with these children and their families, and address their educational, nutritional and recreational needs.

Afikim operates 16 centers across Israel, with a staff of over 100 professional teachers, therapists, counselors and volunteers from Israel and abroad.

We provide:

  • Educational support
  • Enrichment programs
  • Parenting workshops

Afikim guides children and their families, to dream of a better future and to fulfill that dream.

We need your help!

Love, joy & happiness – these are the gifts the children receive at the Afikim center. Not to mention – attention, kindness, a comforting atmosphere, academic help and, of course, a warm meal.
