Discovery Program for Cultivating Strengths and Talents

This program is a joint initiative of the IDFWO Organization and the Department of Families and Commemoration at the Ministry of Defense. The program was established with the aim of leveraging opportunities for the orphans to enable their growth and progress by the cultivating and nurturing their talents and skills. The project includes the formation of a think tank, which, with the cooperation of the families involved, helps explore strengths, interests, and future dreams - precisely those areas where the children need a little push and encouragement.

They are fighting for our nation and existence.

Together we must take care of their families
