What is the UIA project:
The United Israel Appeal (UIA) is a worldwide organisation. 92 cents of every dollar raised goes towards designated causes.
2009 Causes are focused on:
This is an educational initiative which addresses the needs of thousands of Israeli Children and youth at risk between the ages of 6 and 18 years.
They provide interventions enabling the youth to become independent and productive members of society. This is done by assisting the youth to develop their unique skills and talents in order to break out of the cycle of poverty and underachievement.
Th Ayalim Project
This project is a new model of settlement and social action in which vision and reality go hand-in-hand. By offereing housing and academic scholarships in return for community service, this initiative provides young people with the opportunity to settle into Israel's Periphery and serve as agents of change.
The Ayalim Project promotes 3 goals:
- To reinforce the settlement map in the Negev and Galilee
- Education on Zionist values and mutual support for Israeli society
- Promote actions that can redeem peripheral areas from the cicle of abandonment and crisis.
