A major cultural value for our children above and beyond broadening their general education, it gives them an opportunity to express their individual potentials as well as enhance their self image within their peer group outside the Home. This is of particular psychological value for these children coming from culturally deprived background who need psychological and social reinforcement.
Hamifal tries to give most of its 950 children at least one enrichment class, which is being held at home in the afternoons, or at the local community center. These classes include folk dancing and Jazz, music lessons, art and crafts, ceramic, drama and creative theater, gymnastics and other sport classes, computers and other scientific classes. Such courses enrich the child and bring his education and cultural awareness to a higher level, as well as developing his/her potential.
The average cost for Enrichment classes per child is:
10 Hours per month X 60 NIS (~$15) = 600 NIS (~$150)
600 NIS (~$150) X 10 months = 6,000 NIS (~$1,500) per year
