The Tsedek mission is to rescue children from disadvantaged backgrounds and to invest in them. To guide , support, teach, love, and encourage children- to build their self-esteem and give them the confidence to lead normal and healthy lives.
The gap between the rich and poor in Israel is growing, and the number of children growing up in poverty and with social problems increases every year. Social workers and school teachers refer such children to Tsedek when they see that they are struggling at school due to problems at home.
Children come to Tsedek from deprived backgrounds - their parents are unemployed, new immigrants, or single parents struggling to support their families. They also come from families with problems such as drug or alcohol abuse, domestic violence, or with parents who are in prison or have left the family. These children are victims of their circumstances.
Many children are suffering from trauma and face multiple disadvantages – psychological, economic and behavioral. Tsedek embraces them and provides therapy and constructive educational and cultural activities, together with individual encouragement.
