ORT’s mission is to work for the advancement of Jewish and other people through training and education; to provide communities with the skills and knowledge necessary to cope with the complexities and uncertainties of their environment; to foster economic self-sufficiency, mobility and a sense of identity through use of state-of-the-art technology.
ORT is one of the largest non-governmental education and training organizations in the world with activities in more than 100 countries.
It is a non-profit, not-political organization that meets the educational, and manpower training needs.
The aim of ORT’s educational programmes, throughout the world, is to give its students the best possible grounding for their future. This preparation includes education to help them become citizens who will make a positive contribution to their society, focused training to enable them to undertake worthwhile and fulfilling careers, and – for its Jewish students – the knowledge that will give them an understanding and appreciation of their heritage.
