Direct beneficiaries per year: Tens of thousands

Mission:
Jewish World Watch works to mobilize synagogues, their schools, their members and the community to combat genocide and other egregious violations of human rights around the world through education, advocacy, and refugee relief.
Results:
In just five years, we have accomplished a lot:

- Educated tens of thousands of people around the country;

- Successfully achieved passage of divestment legislation on city, state and federal levels;

- Mobilized the community to shed a light on the conflicts through rallies, street seders and over 2,000 people at the 2009 Walk Against Genocide;

- Sent an uncountable number of postcards, phone calls and text messages to Presidents Bush and Obama and other officials to push for legislation and a special envoy;

- And have allocated millions of dollars to complete some life-changing projects

- 46,000 solar cookers have been provided to the women to reduce dangerous firewood-collection trips outside the refugee camps.

- 16,000 students in the Oure Cassoni refugee camp in Chad now have backpacks, school supplies, hygeine items and shoes. In addition, Oure Cassoni has benefitted from the building of the Dillon Henry Youth Centers where children can participate in a variety of extra-currcicular activities.

- 4 medical clinics (3 in Chad and the Dillon Henry Medical Clinic in the Central African Republic) and a maternity ward have been built to aid refugees.

- 16,000 hot meals have been provided to Darfuri children at the Bialik Rogosin School in Tel Aviv.

- And now we are building 2 schools in the Djabal refugee camp for the 1,400 children in the area.
