Prince Sultan Bin Abdul-Aziz College for the Visually Impaired

Brief Description :

In his endeavor to support disabled individuals, HRH Prince Mohammad Bin Fahd noted the disadvantaged conditions of the visually impaired despite their remarkable potential and in many cases their high mental abilities. He therefore launched his initiative to start a higher education, degree awarding institution that fosters learning opportunities to this category of the disabled. The idea was very well received, and during the visit of the Late Crown Prince Sultan Bin Abdul Aziz to the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, the idea of the College was discussed and the late Prince donated 60 million SAR in support of this initiative that carries his name since then.
