Impact of legacy on number of young people we can fund from September 2019

JAEP is currently reviewing applications from the young people of Dheisheh to study for an undergraduate degree from September 2019.
We have received a record number of applications.

Receiving a legacy in April 2019 means we can:

fund more students for the next academic year
increase the amount of funding for the more expensive courses, i.e. Medicine and Dentistry increase finding from $3000 to $6000
increase the number of local universities we work with

More later......

April 2019 a big month for donations!

JAEP thanks all their supporters and is very pleased to report 2018 was a very successful year. £7485 (includes GA) was donated from thirty seven standing orders in 2018. This funds six years of study
We received £755, a record amount, of individual donations in December. We have also had a record year for card sales, and have made a profit of £1200, which will fund one year of study. The four images of Christmas decorations made from broken glass picked up in the streets of Bethlehem, were especially popular, indeed we sold out!
