Welcome to SIRA!

SIRA is a Swedish foundation running two schools in Palestine. The schools specialize in education for children aged from 6 to 12 years and with difficulties in e.g. reading and writing.

The staff of our schools are around 20 people, all of them Palestinians. The work is financed by support from individuals, organizations, churches and is based on christian values.

Education is the foundation for the future. But for children who have trouble reading and writing, schooling is not always an opportunity for development. The SIRA schools in Bethlehem and Jericho are the only schools in Palestine completely focusing on special education.

Our schools give more children a chance to build a solid foundation for the future.
