World ORT is the world’s largest Jewish education and vocational training non-governmental organisation.

Started in 1880, World ORT is today operational in 37 countries and helps around 300 000 students around the world. Specialised in technology, our mission is to provide communities wherever they are, with the skills and knowledge necessary to cope with the complexities and uncertainties of their environment.

World ORT students rewarded

World ORT’s mission, Educating for Life!, is more than teaching employable skills – it’s about helping children find a positive ethical path. Israelis Noam Shitrit and Noam Eliaz are among the winners of this year’s World ORT Gina Harmatz Award for Social Responsibility, which recognises students who display extraordinary kindness, generosity and compassion. They and the other Gina Harmatz winners are inspirational.

World ORT at Bulgarian National Television.

Bulgarian National Television welcomed students on the World ORT Digital Skills Academy to their studios this week as you can see in this slick video made by Irina Zhuravskaya and @Anael Melki. The girls are two of 28 teenagers from across Europe and Israel on this, World ORT’s second annual Digital Skills summer camp in Sofia.

The visit to the television station is just one part of a full programme of educational and social, Jewish and local cultural activities the students have been enjoying. They choose one of three courses: Digital Video Production, Advanced Digital Photography and Audio Production led by specialists from the Lauder-ORT School in Sofia and local experts.

Selected for both their aptitude and their ambition, the students are developing essential creative, collaborative and communication skills as well as deepening their understanding of other cultures through technology – and making friends for life.

World ORT added 3 new photos to the album ORT marks Mandela Day.

“Each individual has the ability and the responsibility to change the world for the better” – that’s the message of Official Mandela Day. It’s a message which our friends at ORT in South Africa have taken to heart.

ORT SA CAPE staff shared their expertise in robotics and early childhood development through activities at the Cape Town Science Centre. And in Johannesburg, ORT South Africa launched a new, free training programme for the unemployed and inspired children with the Bill of Responsibilities – a complementary document to the country’s Bill of Rights initiated by the Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein in 2008. The document has been added to the school curriculum and ORT SA has been training teachers and NGOs in its ethos and delivery.
