SASA Setton’s mission is to lead education for hospitalized children
We strive for excellence, and present up-to-date, advanced programs to enable children who are hospitalized to attain personal, learning and social achievements. We provide each boy and girl with learning, educational and experiential means that will help them best cope with their situation.
The SASA Setton Foundation was established by Philippe and Hilda Setton in 2009. Thanks to the Foundation, after being discharged from the hospital, hundreds of thousands of children continue their studies in the community with self-confidence and in a calm frame of mind. Each year, we are privileged to enable these children to smile, learn and heal. The Foundation initiates, develops and provides advanced educational services to some 120,000 hospitalized children, and operates within the framework of the Free Education for Sick Children Law – 2001.
The opportunity to lead education for hospitalized children is made possible by virtue of the Foundation’s partners in the Ministry of Education’s Special Education Division, local authorities, and the business and private sectors.
SASA Setton operates in 40 hospitals in Israel
