Jerusalem Post Feature: ‘Leap into life’ – WIZO has been fighting for Israel’s women for 102 years

In a daycare center where one teacher is expected to care for six children, it is difficult if not impossible to reach every child.

“It’s hard and it is painful,” said Orly Sharabi, who runs a WIZO daycare center in Tel Aviv. She has been working with the organization for 33 years and told The Jerusalem Post that in recent years the situation has become “inhuman.”

“To be a daycare worker is to do a million things at once and our salary is very low,” Sharabi said. “We impart values, education, change diapers, clean and wash.

“There are situations where one caregiver has to take over 30 children aged three and the class opens,” Sharabi continued. “Sometimes the cook does not come either, so one of us leaves everything to cook food for everyone… We want to give everything, but it is impossible… And we are not rewarded, to say the least.”
