Established in 1980, the National Council for the Child is the oldest and largest organization of its kind in Israel.

Representing the rights of all Israeli children, including Jews and Arabs, religious and secular, sick and healthy, immigrants and native born Israelis, the NCC operates on several complementary fronts as it seeks change in legislation, policy, and practice.

Dealing with a enormous spectrum of issues concerning education, health, children at risk, abuse, delinquency, legislation, media and consumerism,the NCC has succeeded in making real changes in the lives of thousands of children of all walks of life.

The NCC has succeeded in promoting the issue of children’s rights to a central place on the country’s national agenda; has made significant achievements for the general population of Israeli children through changes in policy, legislation and greater public awareness; and has achieved significant results for individual children through the operation of innovative programs.

The NCC serves as both an advocacy organization that operates a legal center, research center and educational center and at the same time provides a variety of innovative grass roots programs that reach the home, schools and the streets.

The NCC takes an integrated approach toward achieving its goals through the operation of four major complementary departments: The Ombudsman for Children and YouthThe Center for the Child and the LawThe Education Center and the Center for Research and Development.


Using the directory:

  • Start specific – Begin by browsing the category that best describes your condition, as this category will only contain organizations that solely or primarily deal with that condition.
  • Think broadly – After looking through your specific category, browse the list of categories to find other useful organizations. More general categories, such as “Legal aid” and “Physical disabilities” will include more general organizations that offer a variety of services to various populations.
  • Check out the tags – The “tags” appearing after “Assistance:” in the listings give a general idea of the areas in which the organization specializes. Each organization’s page then includes more detailed information about what it does and the services it offers. You may also click a “tag” to see all organizations that offer that form of assistance.
  • Search – If you already know the name of the organization you are looking for or can’t find what you need, search for the name of the condition, service or organization by using the search bar at the top of the page.


We have tried to make the directory simple and user-friendly, while being as comprehensive and helpful as possible. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the directory, or if there is an organization you know about that you couldn’t find, please contact us: info@shirapranskyproject.org.
