The CEO of the Manifa Association, which works with dropout and at-risk youth, Etia Dan said in response:
I am glad that the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Education have understood the depth of the problematic nature of non-budgeting programs for at-risk youth during this period.Right now, a few days before the start of the school year, which will probably be the most complex school year the State of Israel has ever known, there is a need to examine how to help youth who need another boost in order to get through the period without dropping out and being dragged into drugs and delinquency. This is a very critical time, all the resources and tools that the education system and government ministries can direct there, will be blessed and sure will save lives.
