New national education campaign

On 13th Feb. 2011 the national campaign ‘Inclusive education for all children with visual impairment in Palestine’ was launched by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education in Ramallah in cooperation with the International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment (ICEVI) and CBM.

Objectives of the campaign ‘Education for all’

‘Education for All Children with Visual Impairment’ (EFA-VI) is a global campaign and programme of the International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment (ICEVI) acting in partnership with the World Blind Union (WBU) to ensure that all girls and boys with blindness and low vision enjoy the right to education. The Campaign is focusing on children in the developing countries where currently it is estimated that less than ten percent have access to education.

The Campaign works within the framework of the general and special education system of countries and initially focusses attention on awareness and demand creation for education of children with visual impairment. Key aspects of the campaign are provision of appropriate support in educational settings and creation of alternative settings to reach out to un-reached children.
