Bayit Cham

A warm home-away-from-home for teenage girls at risk providing a hot lunch, social activities and English tutoring. Netanya


Rationale

In distressed neighborhoods, home life is often characterized by overcrowding and noise. Siblings typically share space without a quiet corner for homework or a private space for socializing; hence they often take to the streets. Add to this parents who, of necessity, work and you have unsupervised children in less than ideal circumstances. A safe, supportive environment can help the girls enjoy quiet time or socialize, receive a hot meal, help with schoolwork, and turn to a trustworthy adult with their problems or questions.

Objectives

Provide a hot home meal. 
Provide enrichment activities supporting the existing activities.

Success factors

80% like the homemade hot meals.
75% feel the activities help them improve in their studies.

Duration

Sunday-Thursday from 13:00-18:00 throughout the year

Target Audience

24-28 Ethiopian girls ages 13-17
