Special Needs Students – Education Aid For Palestinians (EAP)
Special Needs Students – We are embarking on one of our biggest campaigns. We believe that everyone has the right to equal access of education and for this reason we focus on providing sponsorships designed to ease the educational path for those with disabilities. In the Gaza Strip, approximately 35% of disabled people are students, equating to 15,400 students. In the West Bank, there is approximately 24,150 students who are disabled. EAP aims to restore confidence and give hope to our Special Needs Students.
EAP aims to give a voice to the voiceless
Tens of thousands of Palestinians have life altering disabilities, including physical and mental frailties. With the lack of education, low social status and scarce support, they often find it difficult, if not impossible, to attend school. But when you support one disabled person, you are not only supporting him/her but also their family and the community.
