Grand Dormitory Renovation - Keren Hayeled

Renovation of the main dormitory is long overdue. As much as the children’s comfort, health and happiness is important to us, the current facilities, while once appropriate, have become outdated and are no longer satisfactory.

Soiled paint and inferior safety sprinkler system.

In addition, as in all fields, so too in caring for the needs of underprivileged children, it is important to be at the forefront of quality and service. Similarly, as trends in interior design and furnishings progress and improve, our children need and deserve to live in a setting on par with regular children who live with loving families in modern, well-furnished, happy homes.

Worn-out bathroom tiles and sanitary fixtures.

Thus, after several years of careful planning and painstaking preparation, we are elated to unveil our long-overdue dormitory renovation project! And we invite you to share in this fabulous improvement to the lives of the children to whom you have shown so much love and empathy over the years.

Master Plan for an entire floor.

The dormitory has four floors, with approximately 5-6 bedrooms per floor, for a total of 22 rooms. The goal of this grand project is to renovate each bedroom with its own adjoining bathroom and shower, while making major improvements on each floor for the comfort and well-being of each child, who we view as our own. The details of the project follow.

 


The bedroom renovations will include:

  • Entirely new, modern and attractive flooring and ceramic tiles.
  • Re-plastering, straightening and smoothening of all the walls.
  • Installation of new doors and windows.
  • New electric infrastructure, lights, outlets and air conditioners.
  • Completely new infrastructure for plumbing, water lines, sewage and fire sprinklers.
  • Entirely new, more spacious bathrooms with modern sanitary fixtures.
  • New beds, with a limit of only three beds in a room.
  • Clothes cabinets and closets appropriate for the new space.
  • Individual nightstands next to each bed.

The communal spaces on each floor will also undergo the above-mentioned improvements regarding the flooring, walls, doors, windows, and electric and plumbing infrastructure.

 

In addition, the general floor renovations will include:

  • State of the art, central, safety circuit boards.
  • Professional Therapy Room.
  • Dining Area with table and chairs, which opens up to an outdoor balcony.
  • Kitchenette with counter, sink, refrigerator, minibar and oven for cooking classes.
  • Recreation Area with sofa and coffee table for meetings, clubs and group projects.
  • Decorative drop-down ceiling for new spot lighting and fire sprinkler system.

Plan for each floor, including: 5 Bedrooms, 1 Therapy Room (bottom center), Dining Area with kitchenette (upper right), and Recreation Area with sofa (lower right). 

 


 

Needless to say, a well-planned an integrated communal space with its various amenities creates a home-like and respectable environment which is integral to the children’s self-esteem and development.

The architectural plans, permits and building contractors are all prepared. In fact, one room has already been completed which gave us an opportunity to make adjustments and improvements and will make the renovations of the coming rooms better, easier, quicker, and less expensive. It also provides a tangible example and preview of how lovely the other rooms will be.

Compared to the old rooms, this new room has undergone a complete metamorphosis, and it’s hard to believe that it’s part of the same building. The entire staff was very impressed at how well it came out, and you couldn’t believe the smiles on the students’ faces and their joyous laughter! And after seeing the amazing difference, the children are full of hope and thrilled with excitement for the renovation of the entire floors and dormitory. We look forward to including you in our goal to realize their hopes and excitement.

The importance and professionalism of the project have convinced other people like yourself to contribute. This has fueled the continuation of the renovations beyond the one room to include the entire first floor which is currently under construction. In fact, some parts of the project for all floors have already been sponsored in full and are no longer available for dedications.

We invite you to join us and our other partners “on the ground floor” of this incredibly important project, which offers the long term “value” of investing in property. This contribution will not only benefit the current students, but will also make the lives of thousands of future unfortunate children taken in by Keren Hayeled brighter, healthier and happier.

In this way you, your loved ones, and those for whom you dedicate, will provide for these children a safe and comfortable haven from their otherwise turbulent lives and create a refuge within which we can assure that they become stable, contributing adults who will build the healthy, loving homes of which they were deprived, but for which they dream!
