Location

Situation

The young people of the Galil are suffering due to the poor educational and social infrastructure that is resulting in negative migration patterns. As more people move out, investment in schools, early childhood centres and educational enrichment programmes decreases. A cycle of poverty is created as more people move out of the area resulting in fewer businesses, job opportunities and thus less investment in education to support the children living in the region.

Solution

UJIA is working to make the region a more appealing place for people to live and raise families by funding educational facilities to benefit local children. We are doing this by investing in local schools, after school programmes, teacher training and special needs centres in the area. By creating a first-rate education system that provides good opportunities for all young people, the Galil will become a desirable place to live which will in turn boost the economy.
