About | History

Today, the Israel Guide Dog Center is the only internationally accredited guide dog school in Israel. 30 years ago, the Center was the dream of a 26-year old ex-IDF paratrooper, Noach Braun. Noach wanted to start a guide dog school in Israel to help blind Israelis achieve more independent and full lives. With the help of friends and donors around the world, his dream has transformed the lives of thousands of individuals, families, and all of Israel.
