Friends of AKIM USA provides support for the developmentally disabled. AKIM, founded in 1951, is the largest organization in Israel caring for developmentally disabled children and adults. Over 30,000 developmentally disabled and 120,000 members of their families benefit from these services.

Featured Program: AKIM Partners with the IDF

Participation in the IDF is a crucial part of growing up in Israel — reinforcing connections to the land and its people and enhancing the values of camaraderie, intuition, and leadership.

AKIM’s SAR-EL program enables developmentally disabled youth to serve and contribute to Israel’s safety and security.
