The alarming increase in the number of Israel’s children and youth-at-risk remains one of the most unsettling social problems facing Israel. 360,621 of all Israeli children today -approximately 14% - have been identified by Israel's welfare authorities as children at-risk. They live below the poverty line, in environments rampant with unemployment, drugs, alcohol, violence and prostitution. Victims of neglect or abuse, these children tend to fail in school because they possess learning difficulties and struggle to fit in socially.

Negba’s mission is to reduce the number of children at-risk in Israel by helping children from underprivileged homes develop their social, emotional, intellectual and cultural capacity to the same level as children born into families with greater opportunities. Through individualized academic tutoring, social services, nutritious meals, cultural and leisure enrichment, Negba's programs enable children at risk to flourish into young adults equipped with skills to break free from the cycle of distress, and prepared to build a better life through higher education or a vocational career following their national service.
