Schools

ICEI targets elementary schools that have a concentration of Ethiopian-Israeli students from 20% to more than 90%.
 
The program benefits all students in participating classes, most of who are also from disadvantaged backgrounds.
 
In 2018-19, ICEI directly impacts more than 7,500 children.
 
ICEI has grown from a 2007 pilot initiative in Netanya and three schools, to a broad-based program with 27 schools in 14 municipalities in 2018.
 
We work in Petach Tikva, Rehovot, Hadera, Rishon Letzion, Or Yehuda, Rosh Ha'ayin, Ashkelon, Bnei Aysh, Ramle, Kiryat Biyalik, Gedera and Kfar Yona, Netanya, Tel Aviv. 
 
In each location ICEI partners with the municipal education authority and the Israel Ministry of Education.
