The latest youth business initiative at the Emunah Afula. Teenage boys and girls build wooden garden furniture and accessories. The program is run by Segev Dadashev, a graduate of the home, and dedicated housefather.
In the social carpentry shop, the children manufacture wooden garden furniture, swings, decorative wheelbarrows and other garden items. The young people are involved at every stage – planning, design, manufacturing, marketing and sales.
The program employ” at-risk boys and girls who reside at the Emunah Children’s Centre and serve as both a therapeutic and educational experience, and an opportunity for them to learn the basic skills of economics, teamwork, the concept of business management and to earn some extra money.
This program was created during the Coronavirus outbreak, out of a necessity to occupy the older children during lockdown, when they were unable to leave the home or the campus. The results have been very exciting, which encouraged Emunah Afula to set up a more permanent program.
The ongoing costs of setting up and initial operating costs, including raw materials, for the first 6 months are 50,000 ILS. We are also drawing up plans to create a more permanent home for this wonderful initiative with the refurbishment and renovation of a space on the Emunah Afula campus.
