Volunteering at Or LeDor

"Kav-Or" has been active for 20 years in the pediatric departments of all Israeli hospitals. The organization has set up dozens of computer rooms and with the aid of hardware, the internet and volunteers, operates a network of long distance learning for hospitalized children.

The success of the organization's activities has earned recognition from the Ministry of Education and other governmental ministries, as well as from international bodies. In the light of our achievements, we have been asked to use the experience we have gathered to serve the "third generation" and set up Computer Centers for the residents in retirement homes.

Our Aims

  1. To narrow the digital generation gap. To improve digital communication between grandparents, parents and grandchildren.
  2. To establish and run Computer Centers for the residents of retirement homes.

  4. To initiate, encourage and support computer based education for healthy life-styles.
  5. Cooperation with all organizations, governmental or private, in order to fulfill the aims of the Or LeDor project.
