Hope for Life Project

Hope for Life Project


Hope for Life provides tutoring for child cancer patients throuhgout the country.


Children coping with cancer are forced to miss many school days and may "fall behind" in their schoolwork. Failing to meet their academic requirements makes it extremely difficult for them to function during the intervals between their treatments and recovery. This can lead to great frustration and deliver a severe blow to the child's self-image and self-esteem.

  • These young patients undergo many treatments and are hospitalized for prolonged periods, remaining at home due to their need for isolation to prevent the transmission of infection that could endanger their lives.

  • ICA has set up a unique project called "The Hope for Life" project specifically tailored to these children's needs.

  • ICA invests many resources in this project, assigning qualified teachers or students to school-age children, from kindergarten through high school.  These specially trained teachers tutor these children and assist them in catching up with their schoolwork.

  • The tutor meets with the child for 6 to 10 hours a week in the child's home and remains in close contact with the child's teachers, making sure that the child completes all of the missed schoolwork.

  • The relationship with the tutor has an extremely positive influence on the child, his family, and the relationship they have with their peers. In addition to assisting the child with their schoolwork, the tutor serves as an "older sibling" and close friend, with whom the child can discuss everything and confide in freely.

  • Mrs. Miri Ziv, ICA Vice Chairman, stated that: "Our investment in the kids' future gives them and their parents the hope and strength to persevere in their complicated battle with the illness."

  • The "Hope for Life" project provides assistance to hundreds of child cancer patients throughout the country.
