Direct beneficiaries per year: 8 mobile labs, 60 moshavim, 1,600 kids

Geographic areas served: Small, weak and remote villages (moshavim) along Israel's northern and southern periphery

Mission:
Ofanim’s mission is to reduce social and economic gaps in Israel by using mobile classrooms to deliver high-quality supplemental education to every child in Israel’s periphery.
Results:

In most cases, Ofanim is the only social and developmental resource available to these children, outside of school, which may be several towns away.
