Helping families thrive, not "just" survive
American Friends of Yad Eliezer | B'ezri works vigorously to alleviate the constant challenges that poverty presents for individuals and families.
But we understand that the ideal way to help people to climb out of the poverty cycle - and better yet, avoid it completely - is by providing them with the opportunity to achieve financial independence.
Acquiring a higher education and owning a small business are two ways to accomplish this and we help with both.
Zichron Yehuda Leib Job Training Program
Through this program we’ve established an incredible High Tech Track at multiple seminars, so entire classes
of young women can complete certifications in cyber security, coding and other high tech fields, then go on to earn lucrative salaries. This groundbreaking initiative is producing new generations of high earners who are able to support their families well, ensuring they are self-sufficient.
It enables them to steer clear of financial insecurity-instead, paving the way for their households to have solid futures. Our vital support provides funding for courses, computer labs and equipment, and other necessities.
The Job Training program also assists qualifying students in additional fields who are studying toward higher degrees/certifications and are on track to graduate, but whose program completion is at risk due to partial tuition owed. We provide candidates with one-time grants that ensure they can finish their course of study. Diploma in hand, they are able to find gainful employment and earn salaries that will support themselves and their families, well.
This program provides one-time grants to entrepreneurs who've undergone a review process, helping them establish a small business or boost an existing one with necessities. Each of our modest business investments pays off in a big way - by helping men and women grow their enterprises successfully so they earn sound incomes and live self-reliant lives.
As one of the most proactive, forward thinking Jewish charities in Israel, American Friends of Yad Eliezer | B'ezri is driven to help build stable homes and ensure that a lack of money won't hold people back from a life of promise.
Please join us in our critical mission - assisting needy families so they can get on their feet and live with dignity is the highest form of Tzedaka.
