Spring marks growth and new beginnings and that has certainly been the case here at Galilee. The lives of our students continue to be transformed thanks to your donations. We hope you had a good Easter and once again we are grateful for your continued support.
STUDENT SUCCESS STORIES
TWO OF OUR STUDENTS, MOHAMMED KHALIL & YASMEEN ISEED HAVE ACHIEVED ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE.

 
Mohammed is a third year student studying electrical engineering, who has achieved excellence certificates two years in a row.


 Yasmeen is a graduate of natural sciences and had one of the highest scores ever attained in an excellence certificate. Yasmeen describes the scholarship as, “a glowing beacon and a compass that guides us and directs us to the right path.”

Both students credit the help and support they received by way of their Galilee Foundation scholarships, with helping them fulfil their academic potentials. 

It's with your help that we have been able to support Mohammed and Yasmeen. Read more here

RAMADAN APPEAL
YOU CAN DONATE TO US ANYTIME, ANY PLACE, ANYWHERE VIA OUR WEBSITE, BUT THIS RAMADAN IS EXTRA SPECIAL...

The global pandemic has left many students and their families without an income and therefore unable to continue covering the costs of university. This Ramadan, we want to help prevent students dropping out or foregoing their applications to university due to financial difficulties or debt. Please consider donating this Ramadan to support Palestinians living in poverty get an education.

 

DONATE NOW
Big shout out to two of our fantastic individual fundraisers for their brilliant efforts over the past few months, in raising vital funds for our programs. Martha Harper raised a brilliant £850 after running 80k in January and our marathon man Phil Lancaster has continued to support our Move 4 Jerusalem campaign through his ongoing sponsored runs and cycles.
   

In January our partners the Arab Culture Association held three workshops for our students. The leader of the Collective Volunteering & Initiatives Workshop was Nidaa Nassar, who was one of our earliest scholarship recipients, and now Director of Baladna, a wonderful example of the success of our programme.
Last month, we screened the Oscar-shortlisted Palestinian film The Present, as a fundraising event for Galilee. Watch our exclusive Q&A with Director Farah Nabulsi
Our founder Sawsan Asfari, recently took part in a webinar called Everyday Activism, Everyday Resistances, What Can I Do? with the organisation Our World Heritage. Click to watch her inspiring contribution.
