Our Approach

With the support of our Patron, Rt Rev Graham James, Bishop of Norwich, the project continues exploring opportunities to develop its work and outreach. We provide scholarships to bright and disadvantaged young people to fulfill their potential and continue their education in their own communities. - The Project works with universities in the Holy Land to identify deserving students from Dheisheh Refugee Camp capable of making a positive impact. - We continue to develop our links with other communities in the Holy Land to ensure we identify the most appropriate students.
