Kol Boniach, a charity set up 15 years ago to deal with troubled youth from the Orthodox Jewish community has been honoured in a reception hosted by the Speaker of Hackney, Sade Etti.
Kol Boniach was founded in Stamford Hill by Rabbi Osher Schapiro, to help teens at risk who may be involved with drugs, or from broken homes.
The organisation is now regarded as a one-stop-shop for disadvantaged people of all ages across London, including children and families living in poverty, orphans and foster carers.
Levi Shapiro, from Kol Bonaich, said: “We are proud of our organisation’s variety of programmes and professional mentors, and over the years we have a 100 per cent success rate, by working with teens on daily basis until they are fit to be part of society.
“Our counselling sessions, work training, activities, life coaching and skills, social events, parties and many more programmes are all designed to help teens at risk and kids in pain.
