SUPPORT THE AFRICAN ASYLUM-SEEKING COMMUNITY IN ISRAEL
ASO: 5 Years Of Higher Education Experience
African Students Organization in Israel (ASO) strives to empower the African asylum-seeking population in Israel by helping it to attain educational and career dreams and to train leaders in each country’s community.
ASO seeks to correct misconceptions of Israeli society about African asylum seekers by promoting understanding and cooperation between Israeli citizens and African asylum seekers through education programs and exchanges.
ASO aims to empower the African asylum-seeking community in Israel by helping them realize their educational and career dreams and become change ambassadors in their communities.
In March 2017, African asylum seekers founded and registered African Students Organization in Israel (ASO) as an Israeli NGO. The organization initiates and manages multiple educational and support projects for a range of ages and specific needs including elementary and high school youth, post-secondary students, and adults seeking vocational training. ASO offers professional development opportunities, scholarships, emergency food and infants’ supplies, as well as management tools for leaders of 22 African communities. Teen Mentor Project is our newest educational project.

Teen mentor project
we will help you achieve your dreams
Teen Mentor Project (TMP) aspires to remedy school failure, close information gaps, and strengthen academic and vocational skills for currently eighteen students in the African refugee community. The participating students’ academic levels range from grades nine to recent high school graduates. We boost knowledge, skills, and accomplishments in our students using culturally relevant curricula, computers, and suitable learning materials.
TMP helps them develop competencies in English, math, and science while practicing listening, speaking, and socializing skills. Those who want to earn degrees and certificates while learning about vocational and higher education program opportunities can receive training to meet criteria and admission requirements, learn to identify employment opportunities, develop skills in finding and applying for work, and practice proper communication and social skills with access to ASO’s workspace and mentors.
