For sick children in Israel, learning never stops

“Education Without Borders,” a special photo exhibition opening today (September 21) at the UN Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, showcases a unique Israeli initiative that provides continuing education for hospitalized children, including Arabs and Syrian refugees.

Israel’s Ministry of Education mandates that all children hospitalized for more than three days receive continuing education during their stays. The SASA Setton Kav Or Initiative, a nonprofit working in partnership with Israel’s Ministry of Education and World ORT Kadima Mada, provides formal educational programs in 35 medical centers across Israel and develops online platforms and curricula to enable children to continue schooling during lengthy hospital stays.

The photos by Israeli photographer Shahar Azran illustrate the mandate in practice at various hospitals.
