Students Build a Community Students Build a Community project has two main tracks: 1. To create and establish new foundations in distressed communities based on the education of their children. 2.

The ESRA/Meyer Shapiro Skateboard Project Youngsters from the distressed areas of Netanya find themselves with nothing to do in the afternoons and spend more and more time on the streets, often getting into trouble. We provide these youngsters with a sport, a skill, discipline training and self-confidence building, all through the enjoyment of one of the most popular sports – skateboarding.
