Computer for Oren and Gitit’s children
Oren, 54, and Gitit, 52, are trying their best to provide for their 12 children. They subsist on Oren’s monthly stipend from the kollel where he learns every day and on government disability payments for one of their sons. Gitit is at home, taking care of that son, who is autistic, and the rest of their children, ages 8 – 22. She recently joined a program to help housewives re-enter the workplace, and she hopes to find a job soon.
Three of Oren and Gitit’s daughters are studying architecture and computer graphics. To succeed in their studies, they need a computer that can run the specialized programs in their fields. Though their parents cannot afford to buy a computer, these girls deserve the opportunity to break out of the cycle of poverty and pursue their dreams.
