  • Financial Support for Community Projects: Partnering with clinics, kindergartens, counseling centers, libraries, accessible parks and playgrounds, sports teams, arts and media programs.
  • University Scholarships: Awarding scholarships to talented and ambitious high school graduates in the West Bank and Gaza to obtain degrees and the skills to make important contributions to their communities and their country.
