Tarakin Adagio

Tarakin Adagio, 19, is a top runner from Ethiopia whose family immigrated to Israel in August 2000. When he first came to the Neve Yosef Community Center at the age of 9, the staff quickly recognized his athletic talents and urged him to train for competitive sports. Today, Tarakin Adago is considered one of the ten most promising runners in Israel, and he credits Neve Yosef for his success:

“In every part of my life, whether it was sports, my studies or my social life, the Neve Yosef Community Center was always there for me,” says Tarakin. “Because my coaches believed in me I was able to compete abroad as a runner, and my instructors at the Learning Center helped me finish high school with high grades, for which I am very proud.”
