Overcoming obstacles

If you’re a Palestinian, the biggest obstacle to passing your exams isn’t doing the work, it’s getting through the checkpoint.

Asserting the right to education

This is an ongoing struggle under occupation.

Fobzu works to make the voices of Palestinian students and academics heard.

Changing the future

Education is the main way for young Palestinians to gain some  control of their lives in the face of great adversity. Help a Palestinian student build their future.

Challenging injustice

Palestinian students have to worry about tuition fees too, but not as much as they have to worry about their right to education being observed at all.

Fobzu supports the right to education and its role in the creation of a free and flourishing Palestine

Fobzu Winter Appeal 2020Occupation is hitting education. Covid-19 is making things worse.

Palestinian students are struggling

The Palestinian economy is under siege and Gaza has faced a worsening humanitarian crisis over the past 13 years since the illegal blockade began. COVID-19 has deepened the crisis - unemployment in Gaza has now grown to 49%. Growing poverty makes it harder for students to pay tuition fees which reduces funds for universities.

Fobzu makes a difference

The number of COVID-19 cases is still rising in the West Bank and Gaza. Fobzu has responded by working with UNRWA to provide laptops, tablets and internet to joint Fobzu-UNRWA students at Birzeit University and in Gaza. We are also continuing to provide much needed scholarships to students in financial need and working to raise awareness about their plight.
