The Skilled Volunteers online tutoring program is extremely valuable to our efforts to continue to meet the challenge of increasing the accessibility of Ethiopian Israelis to the high-tech industry. Our operations derive from a vision of having the Ethiopian Israeli community fully integrated within all sectors of the Israeli economy. We would like to thank you very much for sharing our dream and for your part in its realization!
