inspector, visits the child's family
once a month and holds work ses-
sions with the volunteers in his
charge. All PERACH volunteers
spend four hours or more with
their charges in two weekly ses-
sions. Though the tutorial work is
strictly on a volunteer basis and
the volunteers are carefully
screened, they are entitled to a 60
percent reduction in tuition fees.
They also get back 75 percent of
their traveling expenses but spe-
cial treats for the children are
paid for with the tutors' own
funds.
Whereas only 22 percent of the
university student population in
Israel is of oriental origin, 50 per-
cent of the PERACH volunteers
are from Sephardic background.
Of the 1,400 such tutors in the Tel
Aviv area, 6.5 percent are women.
It is also interesting to not that
whereas only 15 percent of the
Jewish students are active in the
project, most of the 140 Arab stu-
dents enrolled at Tel Aviv Uni-
versity are members of PERACH.
The Arab children they tutor are
not necessarily poor but often suf-
fer from acute housing and
environmental problems.
Says Giora Zur: "We hoped to
reach 65 schools in Tel Aviv and
neighboring towns this year —
schools in which 50 percent of the
children are in need of assistance
— but so far, we are working with
only 31 schools."
One of the important achieve-
ments this year is the participa-
tion of senior university staff in
the tutoring project. Recently, 120
professors and senior lecturers of
the Hebrew University in
Jerusalem and the Weizmann In-
stitute of Science in Rehovot have
enrolled. An additional 25 profes-
sors from Tel Aviv University
have joined them.
To fully grasp the effects of this
voluntary project one must con-
sider that the average Israeli uni-
versity student is older than his
fellow students abroad, enrolling
only after three years of army
service and also, that the students
often spend two to three months
each year on reserve duty.
Says Giora Zur: "I believe that
time is more of a state of mind for
many students. Some have
plenty, others have very little,
even for themselves. PERACH,
with its 11,000 student volun-
teers, is a great achievement of
which we can be proud."
