The Blind Charitable Society provides education for children who are visual impaired, from kindergarten to seventh grade. The TIPH-funded project will allow the students to improve their academic outcomes and allow them to interact, ask questions and develop new skills.

– It is important for the city of Hebron that children have a safe environment to live and study in, and that they are given the opportunity to lead a prosperous life. Access to education is a basic human right and organisations such as the Blind Charitable Society is an important part of the society. This is why TIPH supporting this project, says TIPH HOM Einar Johnsen.

The first part of the project was carried out on Tuesday when TIPH HOM distributed white canes to the students and teachers in the school. The second part of the project is to develop and implement study plans for the children in math and Arabic, in order to ensure that the lessons are developed in an optimal way for the students.
