School is the house of knowledge. One of the main goals of our project is to ensure that children with special needs have access to quality education, socialization among peers and Jewish studies. Jewish schools of Moscow took this mission upon themselves
Family is the very foundation of the Jewish community. We realize that these children and their families are in crucial need of support. Our community structures provide families with such support and opportunities for socialization, development and embracing Jewish traditions and culture.
The camps are held in the Moscow countryside in cooperation with our partners. The camp program usually includes lectures and support groups for parents held simultaneously with the group sessions for children in the first half of the day.
In working with children, a great deal depends on the expertise and skills of professionals engaged. Therefore, we place major emphasis on continuing skill enhancement, on accumulation and transfer of expertise acquired by educators, professionals and volunteers engaged in the project.
A lot of us, especially in childhood, want to be special, to stand out and to feel different from others. Recognizable, isn’t it?
But there are children who are really different, special from birth, children with limited capacities and unlimited desire to be happy.
Our project and our website are about them – special children with special needs. It is about the ways and the means to help them.
But mostly it is about granting them a chance to feel themselves like others, like regular kids - accepted by their peers.
