A Window to Tomorrow
A Window to Tomorrow – A Computer for Every Child distributes “computer scholarships” to thousands of children a year. These grants include the computer itself, as well as an internet connection and training for the recipient and their immediate family both at home and at a local computer center. Mrs. Safra and the Edmond J. Safra Foundation have been supporting the organization for over 20 years.
After receiving a computer, children report a significant improvement in their self-esteem and self-confidence, increased feelings of social inclusion, and greater scholastic achievements. The new computers also benefit the child’s parents and siblings, as all members of the family learn to use the computer. The organization has distributed 125,000 computers since its founding. It has worked with all sectors of Israeli society and provides specially adapted computer kits to children with disabilities.
