Kfar Zoharim Village Project
Kfar Zoharim is a residential facility for teenage boys who have fallen through the cracks of Israeli society and have been rescued from the streets. These boys shared in the building of the village and shine when they find meaningful work and hands-on learning opportunities. In 2014, SUR introduced Kfar Zoharim to hydroponic farming as a solution to their need for fresh produce during the last shmita.
With additional funding, StartUpRoots could provide additional educational support to Kfar Zoharim and expand this project to a girls residential facility run by the same organization.
