Our Strategic Initiatives
To include speech and functional therapies within the services we offer
To improve our students’ lives, their independence and, therefore, their participation in society, by placing a greater emphasis on speech therapy. Through training and specialized sessions with experts, we will provide a holistic learning experience for our students. We aim to do this by partnering with dedicated global or local entities/experts who can provide the best care for our students.
To offer specialized training services
To offer training sessions for other similar institutions, conducted by our staff members. This will be done by taking advantage of the extensive knowledge and rich experience that some of our staff have garnered over years of dealing with special education students. These training sessions can be topical and will focus on spreading both knowledge and awareness, while also supporting income generation for the centre.
To establish handcraft incubators and collaborations with local talents
- To utilize the centre’s existing ﬁxed assets outside working hours to collaborate with local and international designers and artists, to hold special incubation/training sessions that can be open to the public.
- To evaluate the current handicraft facilities and expand on them, as needed, in order to produce new products, which could further contribute to the inclusion of special needs talent in the workforce.
To develop new programs for non-curricular activities
To expand our existing activities to include new students, while promoting the centre and providing a unique and valuable offering, such as summer and evening clubs. Such initiatives will include training workshops on certain crafts, recreational activities/trips and awareness programs.
To expand, promote and sell our students’ products through new channels
- To offer high quality products partially/fully made by our students from our various professional rehabilitation and vocational sections (ceramics, mosaics, textiles, horticulture, carpentry, nutrition), in addition to new crafts that can be added based on a market demand study.
- To promote the products heavily, through an extensive marketing plan that utilizes exhibitions, online channels and inﬂuencers.
To secure funding to upgrade our facilities and expand our student base
To upgrade and expand the current infrastructure, from the buildings to the overall facilities, as well as our transportation services, by securing new funding streams. To develop a rich and attractive educational offering to encourage afﬂuent students to enroll, in order to continue subsidizing the fees for our underprivileged students.
