Al Basma Special Rehabilitation Centre is a place where young adults with learning disabilities can go during the day for training in valuable life and work skills. The centre was founded in 1987 with just 5 clients and since then has grown so that it now serves 37

The Center

The centre is in Beit Sahour, just East of Bethlehem in an area renowned for its olive wood carving. The centre produces hand-made paper, woven rugs, olive oil soap and carved olive wood decorative objects

The Clients

Al Basma serves clients with a range of learning disabilities. They attend the centre in order to learn valuable work and life skills and for daytime activities

The Training

Clients at the centre work during the morning to produce the craft products sold in the centre gift shop. Making these products gives the clients work experience and the opportunity to contribute to the running of their organisation
