About Takween

Takween was founded by the pediatric neurologist. Dr. Rand Askalan who is , currently, the chief executive officer of Takween. She earned her PhD in neurosciences from Cambridge University in the UK and she was a clinician-scientist at the University of Toronto, Canada. As for the reason for the establishment of the center, says Askalan "I used to came to Palestine once or twice a year to work voluntarily in my field. Through these frequent visits, I became aware of the vulnerability and lack of services available to my young patients in Palestine compared to the services available to my patients in Canada, and this was very disturbing to me so I decided to establish a center like Takween in Palestine”.

The center is unique for a number of reasons, the most important of which is its qualified team with multiple expertise that enable it to address all the needs of the children and their families. "We want the center to be a favorite place for the children where they feel comfortable and happy, and to be a safe space for all members of the family."
