    Improve living standards of those residing in Revivim.


    » A special steering group has been set up formed to draw up renovation plans that is suitable for the existing framework.
    » Training our Staff using new methods & techniques to communicate with our young adults.
    » We received recognition from the local authority in Israel and we need to secure the balance of £173,800 to get this project going.

    What success will look like

    Success will be achieved through our residents living in amenable conditions and being more integrated in their local community.

  • Impact


    Ohel Sarah will be able to host socials and programmes in our newly refurbished buildings that will foster an atmosphere of social integration and reduce alienation.

    Revivim will give its residents confidence and a feeling of social well-being.

    Revivim have developed programmes for every adult according to his ability. If this is achieved it will create more job opportunities.


    All our policies are in place. Permission for the work has been granted.

  • Background


    The project is located outside Tel-Aviv in Israel.


    24 Residents who are severly disabled. The effect of this project benefits their families and siblings. Tel Aviv itself has a total population of 390,000 while Greater Tel Aviv has a total population of close to 3.1 million. Most of Ohel Sarah students [some 75%] come from these lower socio-economic sectors. and because of the large families with little means, more dependence is placed on Ohel Sarah - a hot meal, help with studies, extra curricular activities etc.
