"AN UNFORGETTABLE AND LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE" - Cissy Elinoff
"FIND YOURSELF IN THE SERVICE OF OTHERS."
- Mahatma Ghandi
Golda Meir Academy was built through the generosity of donors and the ingenuity and passion of volunteers who were impressed by Mary's vision for the school and wanted to help her make it come to life. Golda Meir Academy was a labor of love, and continues to operate on the kindness of volunteers and through the talents they bring with them to GMA.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
There are many opportunities to volunteer at GMA as there are always improvements to be made to the facilities and operational systems, and the children enjoy visits from their foreign friends.
Volunteer to Assist in the Classroom or Tutor a Child
Having volunteers be a part of the classroom experience is always a special treat for the children. This is an opportunity for children to learn something new and can also be an extra boon for children who require one-on-one tutoring, which is not regularly available.
Find Creative Solutions to Improve the Facilities
Those who are problem solvers or builders might like to get involved in construction projects. GMA is greatly in need of a proper kitchen as Mary cooks daily for more than 90 children out of one pot. Toilet facilities are also greatly needed to improve hygiene at the school.
Help GMA Become Self-Sustainable
For the business minded volunteer, use your talents to help GMA develop a profit making venture to ensure the stability of the school. Our goal is to help GMA become self-sustainable and rely less on sponsorship funds and donations.
