The Computer Fund

Funded - $ 197,694

In 2022 the computer is a basic need.

 Israel is sometimes called “the technology capital of the world.”  In 2019, Israel was ranked the world’s fifth most innovative country by the Bloomberg Innovation Index. This, however, is irrelevant to those thousands of Israeli children who do not have access to a device for remote classroom learning, homework and assignments, or to access additional learning materials.

With the ongoing pandemic, the need to get computers to students who do not have access to them is even more critical.  Lack of access to technology will perpetuate and intensify the existing inequities in our society.

When the Corona crisis first began in March 2019, Ten Gav immediately identified the problem and began to distribute computers via its social services partners.  Our donors’ concern for the welfare of those who potentially would be left behind facilitated the distribution of 708 computers by the end of 2021. 

Ten Gav has become “THE” address to whom social workers turn to provide computers for students without.  Our mission is to continue to identify those who do not have access to computers and to provide them with this basic need.

The Computer Fund was officially launched in 2022 and we have distributed 550 computers from January through March.
