The Step Up Summer Educational Programme
Camp Kochavim is twinned with The Step Up Camps.
The Step Up programme provides educational activities for vulnerable children and youth refugees who have fled war and violence from South Sudan. The camp offers opportunities for vital English language skills, vocational skills and health workshops, providing a secure and productive environment for these children during the holidays. The programme is run by some of our Camp Kochavim staff. Parents are invited to support our programme and collectively sponsor underprivileged children to attend this educational camp.
In August 2017 we ran the successful educational programme in Gambella, a refugee camp in Ethiopia for 100 children. Last summer August 2018, with the support of our Kochavim parents, we ran the programme again in Gambella for another 150 young South Sudanese refugees, enabling them to do something positive and productive during the long empty summer break. We work in collaboration with a local NGO and train local staff and youth volunteers.
