Education & Community

Keshet promotes education toward a sustainable community. Throughout the years, it has initiated, executed, and assisted in dozens of educational projects in the Negev.

The Association – in fact, a group of parents in Mitzpe Ramon – created the Keshet Kindergarten, a daycare center or “kindergarten” that is operated outdoors, in nature. Gan (Kindergarten) Keshet, which is often called “Gan Ya’ar – Forest Kindergarten” in Hebrew, is the first such kindergarten that was recognized by the Israel Ministry-of-Education. Gan Keshet has become a model for educators from all around the country.

Keshet had also been the supportive home for the Divshon daycare institution in Sde Boker and the “Desert Stars”  – the Young Bedouin Leadership project, during its formative years.

Keshet also offers local public lectures and seminars on environmental issues.
