Every girl and boy at Bet Elazraki has a special place, both in our hearts and in the appropriate framework
At present there are six major frameworks divided according to age group, and separated into groups of boys and girls:
The Main Building for Boys and Girls Ages 6-15:
The main building for boys and girls is well equipped with everything necessary to ensure maximum comfort for the children residing in it. Most of our group activities take place in its many cheerful rooms. We have parties, meetings, workshops, lessons and more. The boys´ and girls´ building is the very heart of our Home.
The Teenage Girls´ Home for Girls Ages 16-18:
Established in 1998 by the wonderful women of the British Emunah, the teenage girls´ house, located next to the main building, exquisitely furnished, provides the older girls with the privacy they so desperately need at their age. In this way, our girls are given the chance to develop good social skills and, at the same time, remain at arm´s length. Our girls are lucky to enjoy the care and support they require from the children´s home staff and their counselors, while still being able to take an active part in the life in our Home.
The Teenage Boys´ Home for Boys Ages 16-18:
When we saw how successful the teenage girls´ home was, we realized how important it was that our boys, too, be provided with a home of their own. In the past, due mainly to a lack of resources, our boys have had to leave the children´s home upon reaching the age of 13. With no place to go, many of them simply returned to the streets. These young men play the role of older brothers to the rest of our children, and it was important to us to keep them close to us. Finally, and after much time and effort, we were finally able to collect enough money to rent a building for our teenage boys where they could function as a separate unit, and continue to be an active part of the home.
This story does have a happy ending, however, and our much awaited salvation came through in the end, at the hand of many generous people around the world. Today, our older boys live in a warm, beautiful, and brightly lit home of their own, just down the road of our own main building.
