BTJ’s Mission: Nourishing over 900 teenage boys with wholesome meals, plus the skills & encouragement to succeed.
Every day Boys Town Jerusalem provides 3 freshly-cooked, wholesome meals for over 900 boys. For many of these boys from disadvantaged families, this is the only food they will receive. Boys Town Jerusalem (BTJ) provides 825,000 meals a year at a staggering cost of $7000 a day. Our goal is to raise $15,000 - one week's worth of hot lunches for nearly 1,000 disadvantaged boys in Israel.
BTJ knows what a world of difference that nutritious meals can provide. Without the gnawing pains of hunger, boys can concentrate on their studies and gain the skills for success. A hot meal, a caring environment and a good education give BTJ students the stamina to rise above their difficult backgrounds and soar to success.
About Boys Town Jerusalem.
BTJ is one of Israel's top technological training centers.
Approximately 900 students, ranging in age from 12 to 20, live on the campus. More than 75% come from disadvantaged backgrounds and need significant scholarship aid. No student is ever turned away from Boys Town due to inability to pay tuition.
The boys receive a top-class technological and academic education and proudly continue on to serve in the Israel Defense Forces. Boys Town Jerusalem’s nearly 7000 graduates have assumed leadership roles in Israel’s technological, social, and academic realms.
HUNGER HURTS! YOUR DONATION GIVES A NEEDY BOY A HOT LUNCH & A GIFT OF LOVE
