Al-Noor Centre for the Blind

With the help of a particular donor, FONSA was able to provide some assistance to the visually impaired young women of Al-Noor.

When we met them, we were impressed by their charm and determination. One of them provided an excellent translation for our conversations and many of them demonstrated other skills.

Al-Noor tries to develop a comprehensive range of skills and abilities with the aim of enabling the young women to leave the centre and make their own living as independent people. Of course, the Nabulsi society is very family oriented so most people have some valuable support available. But economic, social and physical independence is also valued.
