About the charity

Achiya was founded in 1993 with the mission of responding to untreated learning and developmental challenges and delays among children (toddlers through elementary school). Although Achiya was established to respond to the lack of resources and awareness in the field in religious communities, Achiya responds to requests for therapies from families of all backgrounds via Israel’s health plans.

Achiya was founded in 1993 with the mission of responding to untreated learning and developmental challenges and delays among children (toddlers through elementary school). Although Achiya was established to respond to the lack of resources and awareness in the field in religious communities, Achiya responds to requests for therapies from families of all backgrounds via Israel’s health plans. The model: Early identification and professional treatment of deficits and challenges enables children to achieve their full learning and personal potential. Achiya’s paramedical and emotional therapies and holistic professional guidance for families help children achieve their full potential. This strategic approach is also a very effective preventive measure to combat at-risk behaviour and drop-out levels among youth.

Achiya activities and programs reach out to children during the years (early childhood to pre-adolescence) in which therapeutic intervention has a significant and lasting impact. Achiya focuses on occupational and physical therapy, language therapy, remedial tutoring and emotional therapy. Achiya social workers guide parents when children’s issues have a broader impact on the family. Achiya headquarters has a hydrotherapy pool, which also serves children and adults with special needs in the community at large.

Each year, Achiya serves 4,562 children in the centre of the country and 1,500 children in Elad. Achiya programs in early enrichment and intervention serve 69 schools and 128 teachers in underserved districts throughout Israel’s peripheries, from the teacher colleges in cities from Zefat in the North to Netivot in the South to programs which guide teachers in communities all across the country.

Achiya was one of the first organizations to recognize that the best way to ensure that children receive the help they need is by providing educators with the professional knowledge to identify learning and developmental deficits and emotional issues. Achiya established its first teachers college in 1994. Today, Achiya has 19 teachers colleges throughout the country which educate preschool and elementary school teachers in the skills and tools that help them to recognize children’s needs—and guide parents in seeking professional intervention when needed. Instructors in Achiya’s teachers colleges have advanced academic degrees and years of experience in the field.

The graduates of Achiya’s Teachers Colleges are educational leaders in schools throughout Israel. The 6,500 Achiya graduates include school principals, educational counselors and supervisors for religious schools—both independent schools and those affiliated with Israel’s Ministry of Education. The influence of Achiya-trained educators is making a transformative difference in the quality of education in Israel. Achiya trained teachers, principals and counsellors have cultivated a new ethos in communities country-wide. If it was once a shame for parents to seek professional help for their children—it is now clear that it is a shame not to seek professional help in order to enable children to overcome developmental, learning and emotional challenges and achieve their full potential.
