Mission: Tzeva is a non-profit organization established in 1999, which strives to mend the widening economic and social gaps in the Israeli society, and to contribute to a more active society, based on values of personal and social responsibility through education. In Tzeva we believe that each individual in the Israeli society has the ability to make a difference and that every child deserves a chance to succeed. Tzeva works towards achieving equality of opportunity through education and towards a shared society. We invest daily in the practical education of children and contribute to a more active community by establishing and operating after-school study and enrichment centers in public schools and community centers across Israel. In Tzeva we cater to underprivileged children between the ages of 9 and 12, who struggle at school and whose parents often suffer from poverty and unemployment and have little awareness regarding the importance of education. Attempting to promote social involvement, Tzeva incorporates volunteers from all professions and walks of life to work with disadvantaged children including university students, soldiers, professionals and business people, using them as positive role models who can encourage the children to reach their full potential.

I volunteered at Tzeva in Jerusalem for 3 years. For me, it was the highlight of my week. For the children its what took them forward and what is helping them achieve their goals! The teachers at the school always told us how much of a difference they see in each child we worked with. Tzeva is very professional and well run. I was always so thankful for getting training and support.

I was a volunteer in Tzeva for about 5 months, and I had great fun doing it. I went there to feel I was doing something that is not just for me, and I feel Tzeva is a good place to do it. The work with the kids and the other volunteers was great, and very rewarding. I feel that throughout the year a special connection was formed between the volunteers and the kids, and that's what we're here for...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach so many more children that I'm sure could use the help and support.
