Our clubs are transforming cities with high populations of families who live below the poverty line. These communal buildings are shaping children’s lives so that they can rise out of poverty and become contributing members of Israeli society.
Over the years, Meir Panim recognized that impoverished elementary school children need a healthy and safe place to go after school. The branches offer a variety of educational, recreational, and therapeutic activities, as well as nutritious lunch and homework assistance.
By providing support and guidance in a fun and safe place, children stay out of trouble and have the opportunity to succeed. We believe in helping every child thrive and create a foundation for a successful future.

Our staff and volunteers run clubs with an array of activities, including homework assistance and recreational workshops on Sunday through Thursday, from 1:30-4:00 pm for 1st-4th graders.
Our amazing volunteers and staff are running after-school programs for hundreds of at-risk kids from Or Akiva and Dimona at our designated local branches.
