We promote science and technology education for children and youth from a lower socio-economic background by establishing educational centers for technological innovation and entrepreneurship. These centers offer a unique and cutting-edge learning environment that includes: interactive learning spaces, smart classrooms, advanced 3D printing laboratories and more. In addition to these centers, Atid Plus activates nationwide excellence programs that are designated to promote high-potential students within the fields of mathematics and science.

In our vision, children and youth achieve their goals and succeed in
mathematics and technological disciplines, irrespective of their
socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our mission is to develop and promote cutting-edge STEM education programs for under- priviledged children and youth in Israel. We provide children and young people, in youth villages located in the geographic and social periphery of the State of Israel, with the opportunity to develop first-class scientific and technological skills, that will shape their success as people, students, employees, and citizens.
We offer an interdisciplinary and applied approach, employing innovative teaching methods and technologies which also encourage critical thinking, creativity, entrepreneurship and personal growth.

Our Values

Atid Plus sees its human factor as a major resource which it will constantly develop and nurture. The organization promotes values of excellence, commitment, responsibility, human and social sensitivity with a constant desire for innovation.


Our Story

Our story begins with a reciprocal act of kindness that changed the world. One afternoon, several years ago, our founder, Daniel Kovler was kayaking in Lake Kinneret when he came across a fellow kayaker in trouble whose boat had capsized. Daniel stopped to lend a hand. Soon the two got talking and Daniel was asked by the man he’d just rescued a fascinating question: what would you do if money was no object? Daniel shared his dream of giving underprivileged kids from Israel’s periphery an opportunity to benefit from STEM education. Daniel’s dream was based on real experience. He had been that kid living in the periphery whose teachers had lost faith in.

To his enormous surprise the man (who prefers to remain anonymous) gave Daniel the funds that enabled Daniel to set up Atid Plus. Today, thanks to the funds from generous donors like you, Atid Plus fulfills our mission of providing STEM education to children in the periphery and youth at risk, literally saving their lives and giving them the tools and skills to build a better future for themselves.

Our Activities

Our Beneficiaries

We work with children from the periphery

Israel’s education system is marked by substantial gaps that exist between the country’s center and its periphery in terms of government investment per student, educational content, the availability of technological equipment and more. Children in Israel’s socio-economic periphery lack equal opportunities in education, particularly in mathematics and science-technology disciplines. The lack of resources leads to a shortfall of quality educators and inability to encourage excellence among the children. Our beneficiaries include children in youth villages without parental support or children in schools in underprivileged areas with large socioeconomic gaps.

Providing equal opportunities for the future

At Atid Plus, we believe that every child is entitled to receive quality education. Atid Plus Programs promote mathematics, science and technology studies, making them accessible to children with an unfulfilled potential, while cultivating creative thinking and inspiring children and youth to create a better future for themselves.
