Jasmine Charitable Society for Children with Special Needs (JCS) is a non-profit organization that was established in 2002 in Ramallah and Al Bireh Governorate and got formally registered in the Ministry of Interior on 19/7/2003 under the number of RA_2290_C. The society works on the care and rehabilitation of children with special needs, specifically children with mental retardation, autistic children and children suffering from motor, speech and behavioral problems.
The society has been established by a group of families who were not able to find specialized centers for their children with special needs. The aim was to establish Jasmine Charitable Society to receive the maximum number of children with special needs and to offer therapeutic and rehabilitative services for them; these services cover physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and group rehabilitation in addition to a daily program that includes carrying out daily activities in order to enable children to reach maximum level of independence in day to day activities.
The Society has now 60 children (females and males) and were classified to eight groups according to type and degree of handicap. The society would like to accept a larger number of children but the limited space in the current headquarter does not allow registering new cases. Therefore, the board of the society decided to construct a new bigger building for which the building plans and maps have been prepared, donors will be approached bearing in mind that the society secured a piece of land for the construction of the new building.
