Bakehila means "In the community." We are a nonprofit organization working to increase social mobility in disadvantaged Jerusalem neighborhoods. Our goal is to give the children in these neighborhoods the skills they will need to succeed in school, as well as to develop their social skills and self-confidence. We employ a holistic model, working with the child, his or her family, school, local community leaders, and municipal institutions to encourage broad-based social change. By bringing in-school programs and out-of-school activities to five low-income Jerusalem neighborhoods we are making a difference in the lives of 3,000 children every year.
