JAEP scholarship for 2020-2021

September is the time of year when we allocate funding to young people living in Dheisheh Palestinian Refugee Camp, Bethlehem to study at their local universities. We often refer to this as the harvest of our year. The acute need to support students was starker this year (the situation has been impacted by Covid-19 as well as the deteriorating economic and political situation).

Christmas cards for 2020

Candle from Bethlehem

A question we are often asked is how can we help? Standing orders are of course always welcome.

Another very practical way you can help is to buy our Christmas cards or greeting cards.

We began selling cards in 2014 and to date we have sold over 37,000 individual cards.

For the sixth successive year JAEP has produced Christmas cards.

The cards (5.25 inches square) are £5 for a pack of ten cards of the same design with envelopes.
The message inside the card is Peace at Christmas.

JAEP has received a further legacy of £75,000 in May

JAEP is thrilled to announce we have received a further legacy of £75,000 during May

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......
