Afikim - The Israel Family Enrichment Association

Kids Helping Kids Network - Bar & Bat Mitzvah Projects

Share your simchah with Afikim’s children! Bar and Bat Mitvahs, anniversaries, and a host of other special events can greatly brighten the lives of disadvantaged Israeli youngsters - We’ll be delighted to discuss ways you can celebrate your simchah by contributing gifts for Afikim’s children as well.

When you come to Israel, we look forward to your visit of the centers and seeing Afikim in action. Groups are encouraged to volunteer for several hours - just let us know the details in advance, roll up your sleeves, and we’ll coordinate an activity that will benefit the wonderful kids of Afikim.

To get started on your own project to benefit disadvantaged Israeli children-at-risk at Afikim, please contact
