Young Leadership Retreat & Trip to Odessa


Tikva's core mission is to care for the homeless, abandoned and abused Jewish children of Odessa, Ukraine. Tikva provides them with a loving home, essential social services, a first-rate education in the environs of a revitalized Jewish community, and an opportunity for a brighter future through immigration to Israel.

Annual Young Leadership Retreat & Fundraising Trip to Odessa
We actively recruit a select group of 20-25 participants from North America and Western Europe to travel to Odessa each spring to volunteer time with our children (who range in age from newborns to older teenagers). Participants of this mission learn about our programs first-hand, and spread the word about the important work being done to aid Jewish children, elderly, and families in Ukraine and the need for further support.To ensure the program's viability, and to make sure the cost and effort of organizing this trip are worthwhile, we must have commitments from at least 20 individuals to raise at least $5,000 each (for a total of $100,000) in order to proceed with the trip, the cost of which is wholly underwritten by a corporate sponsor. Please tell friends, colleagues, former classmates and family members who may be interested in Tikva about this mission, as we encourage participation in groups. General information about Tikva is available at our website:
