Israeli Youth Renovate IDF Unit's Base


Ma’agalim, an Israeli organization which aims to empower at-risk youth in grades 11 and 12 from the geographical and social peripheries of Israel, this week took on the task of renovating the front lot of a base belonging to an elite unit of the IDF’s Nahal Brigade.

The initiative took shape after Ma’agalim students from a school in Kfar Saba met with the commander of the unit, who told them that the lot was run down. The students responded enthusiastically to the challenge, taking it upon themselves to transform the lot into an aesthetic one, and add to it a memorial for fallen soldiers from the unit.
