Welcome to Ma'an lil-Hayat!

Ma’an lil-Hayat ('Together for Life' in Arabic) is the first and only wool-felting project in Palestine. Founded in August 2009, Ma’an lil-Hayat brings together people with and without intellectual disabilities who share life through work, celebration, and mutual relationships of friendship and trust. Ma’an lil-Hayat is a project of the International Federation of L’Arche Communities.
 
L'Arche is an international organization dedicated to the creation and growth of homes, programs, and support networks with people who have intellectual disabilities, founded in 1964 by Jean Vanier. Today, it operates in 40 countries and on every continent.

In a world that often looks with disdain on people with intellectual disabilities, Ma’an lil-Hayat celebrates their creativity, transparency, and great capacity for joy as important gifts to be shared.
