Dear Colleagues,

Many organizations and institutions worldwide have displayed interest in The MOFET Institute's unique model, and are keen to learn about its underlying concept, the process of its establishment and development, and its various components.

During the months of October and November 2012, several delegations have visited (and will visit) the Institute. Each one of them seeks to focus on one or more particular aspects of the Institute's work, and each one has acquired a program tailored to its needs and goals.

We invite educational delegations visiting Israel to contact us and spend a day dedicated wholly to them at the Institute!

The findings indicate the existence of a clear connection between quality of life at school and the pupils' social skills: the better the quality of life at the school, the better the pupils' social skills.
