CHARITABLE PROGRAMS


In recognition of the 20th Anniversary, The Howie Stillman Young Leadership Fund embarked on its largest philanthropic project, to build a one room school house in Kenya similar to the one you see in the picture to the right. A group of eleven volunteers traveled to Kenya in Spring of 2006 to build this school. Subsequently, four more groups have traveled to this area. This has resulted in 12 school rooms, one preschool room, three teachers’ quarters, a library, kitchen, and water system. A medical clinic to serve 25,000 adults and children is in the planning stages.

HERZL CAMP, located on 120 acres in Webster, Wisconsin on the shores of Devil's Lake, is accredited with the American Camping Association and offers summers filled with plenty of activities, Ruach, Judaism, dance, lifelong friendships, great food and fun! The Howie Stillman Young Leadership Fund has created a fire pit with stadium style seating that will allow the entire camp to gather together for evening programs. The fund also provides camp scholarships to children with special needs.
