CEO

The CEO's remarks

Krembo Wings has been causing a quiet, powerful and significant revolution in Israeli society since 2002. Thousands of children and youth with and without special needs are active in dozens of branches across the country and testify that inclusion, inclusion, integration and equality of opportunity are not slogans but social action full of content and contribution to all. Dealing with it.

´ Wings of Krembo´ gives special children the social activity that is so lacking in their lives and caves them in the community so that they can develop their social skills. Together with youth from general education, from all walks of life and all over the country, they become social entrepreneurs who work for the community, open branches that integrate children and youth with and without disabilities and change the face of Israeli society - for the better.

Krembo Wings is significant for its activists, giving them a circle of social belonging and helping them to form their identity. Activists are ambassadors of goodwill, spreading the values ​​of the movement to all circles of their lives; Family, friends and community and are a role model of accepting and embracing the different.

Krembo Wings is a youth movement in its essence - a movement that meets all the elements of the classic definition of non-formal education; Social involvement, decision-making partnership, autonomy, youth for youth, culture, ideology, symbols, uniforms and more.

We believe that Krembo Wings has proven that it deserves to be included in the census of youth movements and that it is the one that promotes the right of children and youth with complex disabilities and multiple disabilities to belong to their peer society, adapting and accessing the activity in every way in her.

Unfortunately, the movement is not yet recognized by the Ministry of Education and is not budgeted like other youth movements and we are working to gain official and budgetary recognition - by right and not by grace.

Krembo Wings is an innovative Israeli development and its representatives were invited to represent Israel at a conference at the UN (November 2015) in recognition of the unique model it offers as a solution to issues of quality and effective integration of children and youth with and without special needs, in Israel and around the world.

I invite you to come and get to know the activity, to be a part of the amazing work that takes place in the traffic branches. Let's be a partner in Krembo's ז vision: together we create a place and meaning for every person and work to achieve the immediate goal - to establish a branch in every community in Israel.

your,

Talia Bezerno, CEO
