In Israel, more than 876,000 children live below the poverty line right now. This is especially critical as the brutal attacks inflicted on Israel’s people continue throughout the country each and every day.
Our work with Israel’s children goes far beyond tennis. We give each child what they need most… a place to feel safe, a supportive environment, educational opportunities for personal development – and a second family.
Please visit http://itc2015.causevox.com to learn more about the help we provide – and share this with your family and friends. From children with special needs and youth at-risk to immigrant children, the programs and services at The Israel Tennis Centers are open to all children living in the most conflicted region in the world.
Please remember the tremendous impact your contributions have on the lives and futures of Israel’s children. Each and every donation counts! And now through January 31, 2016, every dollar you give will be worth twice as much thanks to a matching grant for up to $500,000 the Israel Tennis Centers Foundation received from a very generous family.
Contribute today and you be the difference in a child’s life! Visit our donation page to learn exactly how your gift impacts the life of a child. On behalf of the entire Israel Tennis Centers family, we thank you for your continued support.
Empowering Israel’s Children…Beyond Tennis and Beyond Borders
Founded in 1976, the Israel Tennis Centers (ITC) is one of the largest social service organizations for children in Israel, serving over 20,000 Israeli children every year. The ITC’s 14 centers stretch from Kiryat Shmona in the North to Beer Sheva in the South. Many of these centers are in underprivileged neighborhoods, providing disadvantaged children with a safe, structured and nurturing environment.
The ITC offers uniquely designed programs to meet the specific needs of its children:
- Social Impact: assisting youth at risk, those with special needs such as Down Syndrome and autism and children of new immigrants from Russia and Ethiopia
- Coexistence: bringing together Israeli Jews, Arabs, Bedouins and Druze to play and learn
- High Performance: training Israeli children to excel as tennis players.
All of these programs are open to all children living in Israel, regardless of background, religious affiliation or economic circumstance. No child is ever turned away.
