  • Overview of Project:
    Hapoel Tel Aviv harnesses its popularity, winning tradition and commitment to social responsibility through a comprehensive sport for development and peace project known as Mifalot Chinuch. Mifalot, through collaboration with local partners and governmental entities, implements a unique collection of programs that address the educational and social needs of over 15,000 children in need each year. For children living in at-risk or isolated environments, such as the Bedouins in the Negev or children in state-run boarding homes, Mifalot provides greater access to physical education activities and opportunities to interact with others and have fun. Newly arrived immigrants and refugees participate in Mifalot to play football and learn literacy/language skills and to better integrate into their new society. Children with special needs play football, learn life lessons, and train as a team. Mifalot also brings their families and peers into the fold through community programs designed to encourage inclusion and community involvement. To foster a culture of peace and coexistence, Mifalot brings Palestinian and Israeli youth together to train, play and compete together as teammates and friends. Mifalot has over 200 projects active throughout Israel and the Palestinian Territories and has shared its expertise with partners in Cameroon and Rwanda.
