Areas of Activity
The Sadna operates two schools that develop learning materials for different levels of functioning in both special and regular education; a housing system in the community and various branches of employment, which enable a diverse work environment – from agriculture and animal care to various branches of art and the operation of a social café.
Sadna employs about 180 workers, who work to promote and advance 250 students and 70 residents. Each resident or student receives a personalized program tailored to his needs and personal advancement goals which focuses on different areas of life – with their special challenges. In this way, a nurturing environment is created – one that allows for calm and tranquility but does not sacrifice the aspiration for constant development and progress. Within this large system, we have established a unique 'integrative community', in which people with disabilities are accepted as equal members of the community. The success and prosperity of the settlement led to the construction of apartments in nearby communities in Gush Etzion.
