“Computer for Every Child” was established in 1996 by leading Israeli businesspeople and social activists, in order to provide computers, software kits and technological instruction to children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The program was sponsored by the Israeli government and has since been operating with the partnership of the Prime Minister’s Office.
We strive to reduce educational gaps by providing essential resources such as computer equipment, time and knowledge. Our goal is to equip children with computer and database literacy skills. These skills will help develop their creative thinking, nurture their self-development and empower their self-image, while also reducing social gaps.
“Computer for Every Child” – as part of the “National Social Development Enterprise” association – is funded by the following partners.
The association (via donations)
The Prime Minister’s Office (via a joint venture and a “matching” format)
Local municipalities (via a differential model that takes into account the municipalities’ socio-economic ranking as defined by the Central Bureau of Statistics)
The children’s families (every family pays a symbolic sum of 270 NIS for the “Computer for Every Child” Program and 350 NIS for the “Computer for the Entire Class” Program
