School Program

The social inclusion of orphans from early age is one of the factors that affect their personality positively.  From here came the new concept of the School Program, in which each school adopts an orphanage. The School helps the orphanage apply the National Quality Standards through several activities implemented by both the students in the school and the orphanage.
