Friends - Ve'ahavta Kinder Kits

Ve'ahavta is a Canadian humanitarian and relief organization, motivated by the Jewish value of Tzedakah (Justice), that assists the needy at home and abroad, through volunteerism, education, and acts of kindness, while building bridges between Jews and other peoples. Ve'ahavta, believes that one approach to relieving the devastating effects of poverty is proper access to education. In many communities in the Dominican Republic, children are unable to attend school because their parents cannot afford to pay for the required uniforms and educational supplies. One project of ┬áVe'ahavta is to pack education kits that contain the supplies necessary for a single child's academic year and to provide these kits to groups such as ours so that we can distribute them and thus relieve one of the family’s financial obstacles to providing their children with the education needed to battle poverty.
