Sundays at daycare

By Tyler Fishbone, Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa
 
Every Sunday, as part of my volunteering with Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, I spend 3-5 hours at a daycare facility for migrant workers.
 
Tel Aviv plays host to a majority of the almost 300,000 migrant workers and refugees in Israel. These people have a tough time getting jobs because many of them do not have legal status.

Organized by Masa Israel participants, Clean the Land is a social, environmental initiative with two simple components: a coordinated, annual, nation-wide trash pickup day; and a mission to educate communities about recycling, sustainability and environmental protection.
