- "Tafnit program closes the gap in Israeli schools"
October 12, 2007
Israeli schools are respected for their high academic standards, and a great deal is expected from students. But with overcrowded classrooms and budgets spread thin, part of the Israeli students body simply can't keep up. From week academic skills to economic hardship at home, these pupils are in need of extra support. This is where Tafnit program comes in, helping nearly 10% of the current student population in Israel.

Unless your child is a participant, you've probably never heard of the Tafnit, or "turnaround," Program. And that's a shame. For 20,000 schoolchildren in some 200 schools just this year - a tenfold increase in participation from its beginning only six years ago - it has literally changed lives.
- "This is how Be'er Sheva fought for 100 dropouts" [Translation]
August 22, 2007
"From 7th to 9th grade, I hardly ever entered the classroom. My mother would drop me off at the entrance, I would wait for her to leave and then turn around and go to have a smoke or return home," says Tom Mehraban, an 18-year-old from Be'er Sheva. "I had 13 failing grades at the end of the year and a 100 in sport." Mehraban is one of 100 students in the city who were on the verge of dropping out of the education system at the end of 9th grade. Fortunately, the person responsible for the education portfolio in the city, Rubik Danilovich, decided not to give up. (His own personal past included eight failing grades that prevented him from matriculating.) Two schools in the city joined with other organizations to start a unique project for these students: Start Success.
