Perkins In Jerusalem
Transforming Education in Jerusalem
In Jerusalem, Perkins helps children with vision impairment and multiple disabilities learn and thrive through our partnerships with local government, educators, and families.
In Jerusalem, as in many places around the world, children with visual impairment and multiple disabilities are among the most disadvantaged and vulnerable to exclusion from quality of education and participation in school life.
In partnership with global and local networks of schools, orphanages, hospitals, universities, and governments, we’re building a system that supports children with multiple disabilities and vision impairment by modeling best practices in education.

With our partners, Perkins is guiding the existing network in Jerusalem towards a national standard that supports children with multiple disabilities to learn and thrive.
We benchmark the performance of schools that serve children with visual impairment and multiple disabilities to help create sustainable communities of best practice and high performance.
We provide certifications to teachers with the specialized know-how in the core competencies needed to provide quality educational services for children with visual impairment and multiple disabilities.
