Professional Support and Accompaniment (NGO) An umbrella organization for teenage girls at risk and for teenage girls without family support from ultra-Orthodox backgrounds

In recent years, the number of ultra-Orthodox girls at high risk (aged 12-21) has been increasing. These girls, who have dropped out of (or are in the process of dropping out of) the various educational frameworks, suffer from social rejection. In the absence of any suitable professional response, they find themselves on the streets. There they are exposed to exploitation and violence of all kinds, deteriorate to alcohol and drugs and some even become involved in criminal activities.
