Siraj Al-Quds School and Society for the Blind and Special Needs
Project: Improving the quality of education and rehabilitation for students at Siraj Al-Quds School
In Palestine, students, particularly special needs and disabled children suffer all sorts of difficulties in the community and in schools due to the absence of appropriate social, familial, and educational environments, rehabilitation programs, employment opportunities, and lack of access to assistive tools and adaptive technologies. The project of the Siraj Al-Quds School and Society for the Blind and Special Needs was aimed at promoting and improving the educational, social, rehabilitative and familial role of the visually impaired, special needs, and marginalized children. The project built capacities of their mothers and the staff working with them, and supplied the school with essential stationery, furniture, assistive tools, instruments, and capacity building courses.
