This program arises from the need to give people with disabilities the opportunity to participate in a long-term plan in Israel, organized especially for them, taking into account all their needs. Darkí (in Hebrew ,דרכיmy way), comes from the word derech ,דרך(way). It is the name chosen for this project with the understanding that each participant will make this experience their own “path”.
To provide the opportunity for people with disabilities from Latin America to participate in long-term plans in Israel.
In addition, the speciﬁc objectives of the program are:
- Strengthen the Jewish identity and Zionist dream of people with disabilities through their experiences in the program.
- To enhance and encourage the personal development and self-determination of the participants through a long-term trip away from their familiar environment.
- To develop adaptive and survival skills in new environments.
- Provide the opportunity to learn a new language.
To learn a leisure activity, carry out internships according to the interests and aptitudes of the participant to implement it in their country of origin.
First stage: Ulpan and encounter with Israeli culture.
Four times a week in the mornings there will be Hebrew ulpan. The objective of the classes is that they learn the basic words to be able to relate and express their needs in Hebrew; in the afternoons they will attend different volunteering activities such as helping the elderly, children and helping communities in need. Every Tuesday they will go on walks in Israel.
Second stage: Workshops
In the mornings they will attend a workshop, chosen in advance by each participant according to their ability and interest. Based on functionality and with a view to their future benefit, the workshops will be: photography, carpentry and cooking. Upon completion of the workshop, a certificate of participation will be issued. In the afternoons, recreational/sports workshops and activities with the madrichim will be held twice a week.
In addition to this, activities will be carried out three times a week with highly recognized institutions in Israel, with a long history of working with people with disabilities, with whom we will work together.
Third stage: Job placement
Each week the participants will be introduced to a different project which may involve, for example, the immigrant community in South Tel Aviv or kindergartens on the border where they live different realities. On Sunday mornings they will go to meet the communities mentioned above, they will have talks with the aim of understanding their reality so that in the afternoon each workshop can meet and think about what they can do with what they have learned to help them. Throughout the week they will work in the workshops and on Thursdays they will return to the project site to deliver what was created in the workshops.
In the afternoons there will be recreational activities with the madrichim and the weekends will be free as in the previous stages.
To conclude the program, there will be a three-day trip to Eilat with the purpose of closing the trip in the best way possible, enjoying recreational activities and exploring the city. This will conclude the program and the group will be escorted back to the airport to bid farewell.
The duration of the program is 11 weeks divided into three main stages. The first one takes place in the north while the following ones are in the center of the country. Finally, there will be a three-day trip to Eilat to continue getting to know the country and to carry out recreational activities.
In order to establish precisely which population will be targeted, it is essential to have a clear and precise understanding of what we mean by “person with a disability”.
For the World Health Organization, “Disability” is understood as a restriction or impairment of the ability to perform an activity in the manner or within the range considered “normal” for a human being.
Understanding that there are different types of disabilities, this project will be intended for any person with an intellectual disability who meets the following requirements:
