Four students in their final year at Al-Quds Open University of Nablus, these graduated in financial Administration, Accountancy, Social Work and Business Administration.

Two students at the Andaleeb College of Nursing

Eleven students at the Amra IT College who all got their diploma in the International Computer Driving License (ICDL).

For 2010 we have sponsored:

Four students at Al-Quds Open University of Nablus

Two students at An-Najah National University.

Fifteen students for the International Computer Driving License. These students tell us how useful this course is to them, to improve their work or studies or their chances of finding a job.

Our goal is to sponsor at least 6 students every year at the two Universities of Nablus. It will cost approximately 4,000.

The students we help are all unable to afford their University fees. They could be just starting their studies or have dropped out because of lack of money. University fees in Palestine are paid by semester. There are two semester in an academic year.

It is your donations that will make a difference. For us to be able to sponsor students throughout their studies we need regular donations, this is where Standing Orders are useful. If you can, please consider it.
