Shalva National Center Project
Shalva is a state-of-the-art facility that provides an all-encompassing range of services for 2,000 individuals with disabilities from infancy to adulthood and their families. Believing that the care of children with disabilities should not be left to the family alone, Shalva's founders, Malki and Kalman Samuels created a therapeutic environment for children with disabilities to grow and thrive. The founders would like to bring the cutting-edge technology of hydroponics to their participants, enabling them to grow by growing while taking pride in the product which they will supply to their own Café Shalva. StartUpRoots' Ari Waldman is both an experienced hydroponic grower and a certified and seasoned special education teacher.
To implement this initiative, StartUpRoots needs to raise $100,000 to cover both the cost of the facility and StartUpRoots' expert consultation.
