Bene Ephraim Project- Temple Emunah Social Action Committee

Welcome to Temple Emunah Social Action Committee's page on Kulanu's Bene Ephraim fundraising site! 

Did you know... 

         That the cost to send a Bene Ephraim 4th grader to school is only $37 for one whole year (including tuition, exam fees, books, and uniform)?

         This may not seem like a lot, but for a family whose sole breadwinner makes about $5 per day, it is difficult to pay school fees on top of food, clothing, and utilities. Additionally, school fees increase as the child gets older.

         The Bene Ephraim are a small Jewish community living in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh, India. Belonging to a caste that has been pushed to the very bottom of the socioeconomic ladder, their families are facing a very difficult situation, and are in need of our support. Most men work as farm laborers, and make very little income.  Besides the community leaders’ family, the adult generation is mostly not educated.  Due to their caste status, they sometimes face injustices/prejudice in schools or in public, and they lack many resources and opportunities that they deserve. 

          By contributing to this fund, you will help support the Bene Ephraim families to fulfill important needs, such as continuing to send their children to school, and ensuring that they get an education for a more stable future!
