The Right to Know

The Right to Know

The Right to Know is a joint project between Kesher and JDC’s Mesira Program, with additional support from the Tzad Iti Foundation, which aims to create comprehensive information infrastructure for Israel’s Arab population which addresses issues a child or adult with disabilities and their families face over the course of their lifetime. This wide-ranging program includes the establishment of 10 Arabic Information Centers across Israel, and an Informational Database which will provide information on rights and services available to the Arabic-speaking public and which will serve to supplement the services offered at the Centers. The Centers will be connected through a national network which will provide resources and evaluation services to the local Centers. The project also serves to raise awareness on the macro-level of the issues Arabic-speaking children and adults with disabilities and their families face, with a goal of influencing policy-makers to create services and programs to meet existing needs. Some 10,000 individuals with disabilities and their families are expected to use the Arabic website (Informational Database) each year, with some 5,000 receiving assistance via the local centers.
