ORT in Cuba

Operational Organisation

 

 CUBA

ORT activities in Cuba began in 1943, when a school was opened to provide educational support for newly-arrived refugees. The school closed at the end of the war but two years later ORT opened a vocational training centre which closed after the 1959 revolution.

ORT Cuba now hosts a range of programmes benefitting the country’s Jewish and non-Jewish citizens. They include the country’s first permanent Holocaust exhibition, a centre providing training and primary services for senior citizens, and a range of computer training, educational and cultural activities for young and old.
