Project: Givat Ada
One of the projects supported by Jewish Child's Day is Givat Ada Children’s Home. It houses and educates children aged 4-17 in five family units and two teen units. Some have been orphaned or abandoned. Some have parents who are mentally ill or addicted to drugs or alcohol, their parents may be in prison or under severe economic stress and unable to care for them. Some of these children are victims of physical or sexual abuse. All of them deserve a better future. The Home aims to provide children with a nurturing educational and cultural experience in a supportive ‘family home’ style atmosphere. This family-unit model promotes self-esteem and healthy development, with the needs of each child being individually met.
How your donations help fund sports for kids with disabilities Jewish Child’s Day funds specialist riding, ice skating, football, cycling, swimming and hydrotherapy sessions and outdoor activity programmes. These activities are hugely rewarding and positively contribute to the physical, social, intellectual and emotional development of children with special needs - helping them to build strength, confidence and self-esteem.
The message kids take away from these activities is:
I CAN! – I can participate, I can contribute, I can achieve
