About Us

The American Friends of the Ariela Foundation works to close the social, educational and economic gaps between the Ethiopian community in Israel and their fellow Israelis. We do this by being the primary supporters of the Ariela Foundation, which since 2008 has worked with two types of Jewish youth from immigrant Ethiopian families: 1) the top 20% of Ethiopian students from middle and high schools in Tel Aviv-Jaffa and Nes Tziona and 2) students who are gifted in any manner of areas from mechanical engineering to painting and beyond. The Foundation’s tailored programs help Ethiopian youth to dream, open up doors previously shut tight and provide psycho-social and educational support toward actualizing their fullest potential.
