Beit Apple Children’s and Youth Village offers a new chance at life for children who suffer from tragic circumstances: neglect, abuse (physical /emotional) and being orphaned. Currently, the village supports the upbringing and development of 200 children ages 3 to 18. For most of the kids, Beit Apple is all they have in this world. It’s a place they call home. It’s an environment that provides critical nurturing for development, access to education and therapy to overcome the challenges these youth are facing

GE’s Crotonville Executive Learning Class, EDC, is proud to be partnering with The Israel America Foundation and Beit Apple to help support their mission. Located in Gan Yavne, Isreal, Beit Apple is one of 3 Mishan Villages supported by the foundation. Founded in 1954, their mission and services provide continued support to at risk children when parents are unable to raise them.
