Chairman of the union "Chefs without Borders" Hanan Sagi volunteering for us is a way of life, I like to see the sparks in the children's eyes during the activity, it is important to me that the children take part and find out that they have the ability to do things they thought they couldn't do before, it raises their confidence, and believing in their selves.
Nardim village belongs to Israeli association for the rural children, that is part of the world union SOS that operates over 3 decades. The union collaborates with the ministry of social affairs and social services and runs a special modiel of 2 villages for children at risk, one in the south (Nardim village) and one in the North (Megadim village). Children who are taken out of their homes by the authorities and come to the village from the age (6-12) and can stay up to the age of 23 in adults homes. We have 250 children and teens in the 2 villages. The village model is unique, in every village there are no biological families, every family has a mother and 8-9 children. The children fit in regular schools, go to the army and have a chance to change their life and fulfill their potential and future.
