For Early Childhood Development In The Arab Society Of The Negev

Al-Baqour was founded by professional men and women from a variety of fields, mainly specialists in early childhood well-being. Team members are Arab and Jewish residents of the Negev.

We develop and operate culturally and community appropriate models for young children and their families. In addition, we design and carry out programs for partners and colleagues

Our vision

Reinstating a sense of inner control to the parents and the community as a whole, while facing the changes and transformations the community goes through at the intersection between a traditional and a modern society. Imbuing parents with confidence and inner strength in their ability to impact and promote their kids development, from childhood to adulthood. We put a lot of thought into devising methods to preserve traditional practices of parenting and raising children, in correspondence with the changing reality.
