FAID was founded in 1957 by Anglican clergyman Rev. Dr. Arie J. Andeweg. Proven to be one of the most prominent deaf education centers in the Middle East, FAID has educated numerous deaf children (aged 3-18) through the years of its service.
FAID is a non-profit (Presidential decree No. 10680), non-sectarian and non-governmental organization with no political affiliation, established to provide assistance, education, services and other resources for deaf children, regardless of their religion, gender or ethnic origin.
