rachel needs help

First days of school should be exciting, right? New classes, meeting old friends, fresh clean notebooks. But for Rachel, it was different.

She walked into her 5th-grade class with the same old backpack from two years ago, clearly worn out. Most of her classmates were busy showing off new textbooks and colorful binders and pretty pencil cases. Rachel was quiet. When the teacher asked about her textbooks, Rachel quietly said, “I don’t have them.” You could feel the embarrassment in the room.

Rachel isn’t alone in this. Many children don’t have basic school supplies and start the year feeling left out and ashamed. It’s a tough start, both for learning and for fitting in.

We can change that. Just $45 gives a kid like Rachel a new backpack and all the supplies she needs.

This isn’t just about pencils or books. It’s about giving kids confidence and a fair start. Together we can make sure all our kids look forward to the first day of school.

Many of these young students come from homes overshadowed by poverty and daily stress. The lack of basic school supplies is another weight on their already burdened shoulders.

Not having the essentials isn’t just about missing a notebook or pen; it’s about facing yet another day feeling different, left out. But you have the power to change this narrative.

With your donation, you offer Israel’s impoverished children the chance to experience a normal childhood and a brighter, more confident future.

Be part of Meir Panim’s mission, create a lifelong impact on hundreds of Israeli kids – one backpack at a time.
