This document is the product of a collaborative effort between JDC Israel Ashalim and Social Finance Israel, a public-benefit company that aims to promote social discourse by gaining an understanding of the economic viability of investing in the early childhood population sector in Israel, as part of a desire to change the perception of public investment in this population group.

The developing strategy of JDC-Ashalim is reflected in the analysis of the economic benefit likely to result from incremental national investment in children ages birth to 6 years in the Education and Care field. As a result, the activities of JDC-Ashalim as a developmental organization for the promotion of socioeconomic mobility should be intensified, which would in turn effect change in the situation of individuals and population groups in both the short- and mid-term, and positively impact the situation nationwide.

Partners: JDC Israel Ashalim | Social Finance Israel
