JAEP success with funding from Quaker Peace and Social Witness (QPSW)

JAEP has been successful in securing £15,000 (£5000 per year for three year) funding from QPSW. We received the first £5000 in May 2017 and second £5000 in May 2018. We're thrilled, this level of funding enables us to fund more young people from Dheisheh to study for an undergraduate degree at Al Quds University.
