Palestinian students in Gaza navigate frustrating, demoralizing, and illegal barriers every single day as they strive to attain a basic human right – receiving a quality education. And since they can’t study abroad at a school in your town or even go on a trip to learn about the historical wonders of the world – we need to take our messages to them.
Please visit our Send a Message to Gaza page and send a message of encouragement, solidarity and support. Your message will be sent to the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and from there, directly into the hands of students like Abd-AlRahman, a Telecommunications Engineering student at Al-Azhar University, or Ilham, a student at Palestine Nursing College; their stories are among those featured on Fakhoora.org.
While it’s critically important for us to continue our work and speak up for these students’ rights, we should also recognize how powerful it can be to speak to the students!
