About Keren Shemesh
Making a difference in the lives of children in Bet Shemesh
Keren Shemesh – the Beit Shemesh Development Fund, was founded in July 2005 and is the leading non-profit organization in the city. The main goal of the Fund is to improve the lives of the residents of Beit Shemesh, to invest in education and improve cultural activities in the city. Our Board of Directors is composed entirely of local residents, some immigrants to Israel from the west and some native born Israelis. The members of our board have a strong sense of volunteerism and are actively involved in and contribute to all aspects of life in the city. The Fund has tax deductible status from the Ministry of Finance of Israel and is recognized as a non-profit organization to receive donations in the United States.
One of our leading Projects is the "Sponsor a Child" program: Keren Shemesh has set for itself the goal of breaking the cycle of poverty which plagues our city. We are now seeing the evolution of the fourth generation of poverty in the community; this is the major challenge which Beit Shemesh has been dealing with over the past 50 years. We know that the major key to breaking this cycle of poverty is education.
Israeli parents pay sizable fees for their children's education. In addition to tuition fees, there are school supplies, text books, note books and school uniforms that must be purchased, not to mention school trips and enrichment programs along with art and music that must be paid for separately. We need your help and support!!Help us to save those children from falling into the category of those who cannot afford the most basic school fees. We welcome you to visit our WEBSITE and learn more about our project and more significantly, find how you can help to insure a better future for the children and the community of Beit Shemesh. www.kerenbshemesh.org.il
