One month scholarship
American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA)
Over time, poverty, violence and uncertainty chip away at a young child’s hopes for the future. By giving children the opportunity to attend school, you are helping them gain a sense of control. Education has permanence and cannot be taken away from them. Most importantly, it can be used as a means to improve their future.
Your gift will provide a scholarship to one child for one month. Each scholarship helps cover the costs of education, such as school fees, books, school supplies, food, clothing and medical care. Scholarships are given to poor and special-needs children living in extremely difficult circumstances in the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan and Lebanon. Currently there are seven schools in the program, all of which have been carefully screened and continue to be monitored by ANERA field staff. Scholarship funds are sent directly to the students' schools.
