AKIM is the largest and most comprehensive provider of programs and services for the intellectually disabled—serving 34,000 children, teenagers, adults, and senior citizens throughout Israel.
AKIM believes that every individual, including those with an intellectual disability, deserves to have rich, fulfilling lives, and access to education, housing, employment and leisure activities. Each person is unique and requires varying levels of support from full-time, long-term assistance to physical rehabilitation and occupational therapy. Those served come from all over Israel and represent all religions and ethnicities.
