Project Education and Community Development, Ofakim, Israel. Evaluation Report for the Period January-June 1981.
This is the second report evaluating Project Education and Community Development, a project which was conducted in largely Islamic Jewish, disadvantaged neighborhoods in Ofakim, Israel. Part I describes the project's background, aims and objectives, intervention strategies, and implementation phases. Part II consists of an evaluation of the project's components from January through June, 1981. Three programs are discussed separately: (1) the EMRA Home-Intervention Programme, a community based program for mothers of infants and toddlers living in relative social isolation and possessing little awareness of the importance of providing their children with a stimulating and enriching home environment; (2) a program which set up play corners in several pediatric clinics; and (3) the Neighbourhood Centre Programme, a program which opened centers for parent education and early childhood education enrichment. Appended are the various interview and assessment instruments used to evaluate the project. (GC)
