Nir Haemek School and Youth village, Afula

For over nine decades, WIZO has been home to hundreds of thousands of children, including some of Israel's least fortunate young citizens. WIZO provides a warm, supportive, and loving environment for children in need, including a home for children who have none. Children living in WIZO facilities receive the support and experise they need from psychologists, social workers, and educational staff. WIZO has implemented unique programs in order to ensure their students always have a home to live in and a family in which to belong.

WIZO USA proudly sponsors the Nir Haemek High School & Youth Village located in the northern city of Afula. The facility provides residential facilities for about 175 children from troubled households. Those residing in the dormitories are either survivors of abuse and neglect or have immigrated to Israel without relatives to care for them. Many of the children are referred to Nir Haemek by social service agencies.

The school is one of the largest, most modern schools in northern Israel and is a remarkable model of mainstreaming high risk teens from dysfunctional homes with students from the surrounding neighborhood. Nearly 900 students from the Afula area who return home at the end of the school day learn with students residing in Nir Haemek’s dormitories.

A total of 175 staff and faculty members work at Nir Haemek to ensure that each child’s educational and emotional needs are met.

WIZO has found that many of the children that reside in Nir Haemek’s dormitories suffer from symptoms that typically accompany Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) including but not limited to difficulties concentrating, restlessness and impulsivity. The most significant challenge in treatment is that for many the students their difficulties were not identified until they arrived at Nir Haemek in their teens. Research has shown that children suffering from symptoms of ADD/ADHD are able to overcome their difficulties with proper attention and early intervention. However, this intervention is nearly impossible as even the children’s most basic needs were not met in their homes. WIZO provides many therapies that have helped these students thrive.
