Our program is producing impressive young leaders with a bright future.

The program, now only its eighth year of activity, has had marked success:  Three LOF groups have graduated, with a 100% matriculation rate and a 100% rate of conscription into the IDF and National Service (including two officers, as well as soldiers in elite units such as Intelligence Corps Unit 8200 and the Paratroopers).  The majority of those who completed military service are already on their path to pursuing higher education. 

Ethiopian youth are faced with challenges in the education system, and this is often the first real opportunity to demonstrate excellence comes during their military service. Due to this, LOF strongly believes that excellence in the IDF should serve as the true criteria for selecting candidates for higher education and has begun approaching Ethiopian soldiers who are nearing completion of military service and engaging them in a path towards higher education. Currently, we are helping more than 70 medical and engineering students from The Technion and Hebrew Universities by providing ongoing scholarships. 

YOU ARE AS GREAT AS THE CAUSE YOU SERVE AND AS YOUNG AS YOUR DREAMS
