Friends of Ofanim
November 3, 2009

I am honored to be the board chair of Friends of Ofanim and partner with my Israeli "brother" Haim Dahan and Israel’s leading business people on this innovative project. When you consider the situation in Israel's periphery, and how these kids need more resources for education, Haim's idea is really quite brilliant. If the solution requires you to think differently, you change the paradigm. Ofanim is that game changer. Mobile labs drive the best education Israel has to offer right to its poorest communities.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the remote village in Israel. We're getting AWESOME feedback from parents, school officials and government officials. Everybody wants to be involved in this, including many of Israel's leading philanthropists.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing how excited people are when I share Ofanim’s mission, vision and impact. Using innovation and technology to strengthen our greatest resource in Israel, our children’s future, is a goal that’s bringing a lot of different people together.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the best of the best. Like every great leader, Haim Dahan attracts the most committed, the most professional and the most effective people to manage and run Ofanim.

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

continue to change the face of Israel’s education and the way we use technology and innovation to bridge economic gaps in the 21st century.
