Program 1

ORT Programs

Throughout its 123 years, ORT has been there to lend support and assistance in times of need. ORT today, as it has in the past, is helping communities cope with circumstances like terror, economic decline, and political upheaval. In Argentina and Israel, ORT not only provides a comprehensive education, but it also supplies coupons for hot meals and bus rides, trauma counseling, additional security, and makes up to offset the hours diverted by governmental cutbacks in funding.
