Mission & Goals


Mission:

The programs and activities run by the society are designed to improve the quality of life of blind and visually impaired Palestinians and facilitate their integration into the local community by promoting and enhancing their cultural, educational, social and economic standards.


Goals:

The main objective of the society was first to produce books in Arabic and English Braille, thereby establishing the first library of Arabic Braille books in the entire Middle East. As a result of the 1967 war, offering these services to other Arab countries became impossible. However, the unit for Braille book production and library gradually expanded.
