Why does ORT Belgium organize trips ?
After twenty years, ORT schools in Belgium closed their doors around 1965-1966. This is the reason why ORT Belgium decided to organize trips abroad in cities where ORT schools are active mainly on the high-school level.
From 1946 onwards, there were three ORT schools in Belgium. They trained survivors of the Shoah to enable them to rapidly integrate the active society and become independant.
It has been ORT’s mission. It still is ORT’s mission. However today World ORT focuses on sciences, technologies, maths and engineering.
