General Information: 

Tzimaon initiates projects aimed to inspire, promote and empower weakened families with emphasis on education, enrichment and personal support for all members of the family. Tzimaon operates in two distressed neighborhoods: Givat Olga in Hadera and Shapira in Tel Aviv. Tzimaon's projects are diversified and support the local communities in a variety of ways. All members of Tzimaon are volunteers, we have no offices and our projects are funded by donations we secure from companies or individuals who support our cause.

Mission and Objectives: 

The goal of the activity is to expand the opportunities for the weakend families (parents & children) by enhancing the educational aspect for children & teens (homework assistance, tutors for learning disabilities & scholarships for higher education), teaching parents how to better conduct themselves, exposing the community to new cultural experiences. Education is the key to success in all aspects of life.

Main Projects / Activities: 

Tzimaon operates in two distressed neighborhoods: Givat Olga in Hadera and Shapira in Tel Aviv. In Givat Olga we operate the community library, a football course and an empowerment group for women. In Shapira we fund the local Scouts troop, which is composed of native Israelis, children of work immigrants and refugees. We also fund the community center within the perimeter of the Scouts troop that provides a safe haven for the children, where they receive help with homework & a large variety of after-school activities. Tzimaon has a scholarship project in which we provide financial, professional and personal support for students for the duration of their studies.
