In Palestine many children have hearing-related disabilities. The main cause is related to the consanguinity of the parents: the marriage between cousins is a widespread habit in these territories. For these children, specialized courses are required in which traditional subjects, techniques of communication and comprehension of language are learned. Many Palestinian families,living in difficult economic conditions,do not have the possibility to support the costs to attend the center.


The Effeta center addresses the problem of deafness by offering a series of specialized services. A part of the services is aimed at children and their families in order to make the deafness problem more and more aware and to accompany them. Another part it is aimed directly at children: a kindergarten and one of the obligation in which, thanks to appropriate methodologies, the child is given a suitable education and is taught how to interact and communicate despite the physical handicap.

Long-Term Impact

In addition to guaranteeing 20 children with hearing difficulties, the opportunity to attend classes regularly and to learn how to communicate more easily with others. The project also has the advantage of promoting a sense of responsibility in the beneficiary families who are aware of the need for education for their children, and thus they commit themselves to what they can to cover the remaining costs of education and transport.
