Young volunteers from Israel and the Jewish Diaspora work to promote the social resilience of the community in the city of Huambo in Angola, Africa, in the spirit of universal Jewish values.
Strengthening the local community in Huambo, Angola, through volunteering at an orphanage that was neglected for years and didn’t receive proper support in light of economic and cultural reality in Angola. Dozens of young children and teens live in the orphanage and hope for a better future.
Collaboration between the Menomadin Foundation, Fundacao (the Menomadin Foundation in Angola), and the Jewish Agency’s Project-TEN enables the development of a volunteer center in Huambo City. The volunteers, Israelis and Diaspora Jews, will live near the orphanage and take part in a variety of informal activities and educational settings. Using diverse educational models, the local children will acquire 21st-century life skills, develop new personal skills and receive a professional response to their needs, that will give them a better future and strengthen the local community.
