About Friends of Yemin Orde:
Friends of Yemin Orde is the US fundraising arm of Yemin Orde Youth Village and Yemin Orde Educational Initiatives (YOEI). Yemin Orde Youth Village is located in northern Israel, near Haifa. It is home, school and safe haven to hundreds of at-risk and immigrant youth from all over the world, including Ethiopia, France, the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe and Brazil. The children at Yemin Orde have all experienced trauma: from abandonment and isolation to loss and extreme poverty. With the help of the Village’s dedicated staff, educators and professionals, they cultivate self-esteem, leadership skills, strong cultural identity and a positive outlook on life. The promise that “Yemin Orde is always there for you” is not an empty statement to its graduates, teens and children. Graduates receive a wide range of services including scholarships and emergency financial support. At Yemin Orde, the children find a family and a future.
Yemin Orde Educational Initiatives (YOEI) extends Yemin Orde’s unique methodology, called “the Village Way”, to 24 other youth villages and public schools in Israel by providing workshops, teacher training and interventions, thereby reaching hundreds more at-risk children. By 2017, YOEI hopes to partner with 29 educational communities throughout Israel. Today, YOEI and its resources are credited with transforming education for at-risk youth in Israel.
