The primary beneficiaries include dropout youth between the ages of 15 - 18 from
Jerusalem and surrounding communities, the majority of whom lack a sense of
community and have limited employable skills.
The educational community
Kaima works with other NGO's, municipalities and government authorities to provide meaningful engagement of the young people in
The community at large
With interest in organic food on the rise, Kaima's model of selling organic produce and teaching permaculture is in synch with an existing natural market waiting to be further developed.
Beyond our commitment to agricultural sustainability, Kaima also maintains that society must be committed to human sustainability. In this effort, we come together as a community to attend to the unique needs of each boy or girl who has dropped out in an effort to re-engage them in meaningful endeavors.
We are able to operate as an “educational employer” thanks to the generous support of our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) subscribers; in-kind commercial and community support; government and local authorities; as well as critical philanthropic partnerships.
To all we say "toda raba" - thank you very much!
