Unitaf is the social initiative of the Yehuda Tribitch Fund for Social Involvement which operates a network of day care and after-school centers for the children of migrant workers and asylum seekers in Tel Aviv.
Since there was no existing framework for caring for children during the day, the foreign community created its own solution by establishing pirate child-care frameworks (“babysitters”). Unfortunately, these frameworks expose the children to extreme conditions of risks and neglect, their emotional, physical and motor state are impaired as a result of remaining in cribs and other limiting conditions for long periods of time, and these environments cannot provide their basic needs. The Unitaf model creates a suitable alternative, providing these children with a safe, warm and nurturing framework. Unitaf brings together pre-school teachers from the foreign community with team of Israeli social workers and educators under one roof. The staff of these pre-schools undertake to maintain high standards, working under close educational supervision. The children and their families are offered many social services in all domains. We believe that the stability of a family is the main factor that most affects a child’s quality of life, and therefore, much effort is involved in reinforcing the family connection. In addition, in order to deepen the involvement of parents in what is done in Unitaf, we run a Parents’ Committee that works together with the staff to promote activities within these frameworks.
The children who are part of Unitaf spend their day in a pleasant atmosphere, where, between 07:30 and 18:00, they receive dedicated physical care, personal and warm attention in addition to educational stimulus suitable for their needs.

In 2005 the Fund for Social Involvement in cooperation with the Municipality of Tel Aviv established UNITAF, the first daycare center for refugee and foreign workers’ children. In 2008, a second UNITAF Center was opened inside the central bus station of Tel-Aviv. At January 2012 we opened the third Unitaf center. In 2010 and 2011, we added services for children aged 3-6 , that enjoy our three after- schools program. Today 250 children are being cared for in all of Unitaf brunches, and during the last nine years, 1200 children have enjoyed our services. We are making efforts to open additional daycare centers in order to be able to expand these services and offer them to as many children as possible. Our hope is to gradually get rid of the phenomenon of pirate pre-schools and create opportunities for exposure to good and suitable services for all the children of this community. We welcome volunteers and donations, in order to be able to continue our activities.
