Friends of Birzeit University (Fobzu) summer appeal

20 July 2018

Over the past year UCU has been working closely with Fobzu in supporting access to education in Palestine.

Palestinian students are now considering whether they will be able to go to university in September. They belong to the fourth generation of Palestinians to grow up under occupation or in exile. For many, the heavy toll of blockade in Gaza and de-development in the West Bank means that a university education is now unaffordable.

With your support, Fobzu provides scholarships to students at universities across occupied Palestine and foster the hope that comes from pursuing education. Last year they supported 19 students in the West Bank and Gaza and this academic year want to help even more.
