Maurice and Vivienne Wohl Charitable Foundation (UK) transforms neighborhoods in south Tel Aviv
Following the tremendous success of the ‘Neighborhood as a City’ program – initiated by the Maurice and Vivienne Wohl Charitable Foundation (UK) – the transformative program has been extended to three more neighborhoods in south Tel Aviv over the next three years.
‘Neighborhood as a City’ began five years ago to strengthen the neighborhoods of Shapira and Kiryat Shalom. It benefited almost 5,000 residents by providing targeted support in the early, formative stages of life: ‘Early Childhood’, ‘Empowerment in Education’, ‘Teens’, and ‘Young Adults’ and ‘Employment’. At a community level, social cohesion, civic responsibility and cooperation between social service agencies increased significantly.
