Past Projects

ORT Advanced Technology Centre, Samara, 1998-1999

Samara is a large industrial city in South-Eastern Russia with a Jewish population of 10,000. In October 1999, ORT opened an advanced technology centre based at the Jewish school in the city.

The new centre aimed to teach the school's students the advanced skills in Information Technology which they needed to compete in Russia's competitive employment market, and to encourage more Jewish families to send their children to the school.

KesherNet - Expanding Employment Opportunities for Women in the Ukraine

ORT-KesherNet is a network of training centres in the former Soviet Union aimed principally at women, and geared towards helping people to improve their employment prospects, and for those in employment, to help them to progress. The program serves outlying communities, far from the major cities, where job prospects and the local economic situation is more challenging.

The program, a joint project of World ORT and Project Kesher, began in 1999 and currently has 15 centres, in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus.
