Our Mission

The Jaffa Institute was established in 1982 as a private, non-profit, multi-service social agency to assist the city of Jaffa’s severely disadvantaged children and their families. Our mission is to provide educational, recreational and social enrichment programs which enhance the self-esteem and academic performance of each child in our care, thereby enabling them to succeed academically and break the cycle of intergenerational poverty into which they were born. Through over 30 different initiatives our programs reach 4,000 citizens annually.
