The Na Laga’at workshop center plays an important role in giving a new perspective on what it’s like living in a world with a sense impairment. The center holds various workshops, some in complete darkness, that are led by Deaf, hearing impaired, deaf-blind, blind, or visually impaired moderators. This direct and informal contact, we believe, is the key to creating a true change in society.
By teaching our content to both primary and secondary schools, a deep dialogue forms between the different communities. We foster the ability to accept each other’s strengths and not judge based on the weaknesses – a true learning experience.
The Na Laga’at workshop center is open to all the public. We believe in tailoring our contents and moderators in accordance to each intended audience as per its needs as a group.
- Education groups and school students
- Youth within both the formal and non-formal education frameworks
- IDF units
