It is with gratitude and appreciation that we announce the retirement of Dr Donna Baillie as the Chair of the Board and Trustee of Fobzu. Dr Baillie's dedication, leadership, and commitment to our mission have been exemplary. Her years of service have left an indelible mark on Fobzu, developing our programme so that we can continue to support Palestinian higher education over 45 years since Fobzu was founded.
Under her guidance, Fobzu has achieved significant milestones, and her passion for building academic links between Palestine and the UK has been the driving force behind many successful endeavours. Dr Baillie's legacy will continue to inspire us in our mission to empower Palestinian students and higher education institutions in Palestine.
We wish Dr Donna Baillie all the best in her future pursuits and are confident that her impact will continue to resonate within our organisation and beyond. We now look forward to a new phase in Fobzu’s renewal and growth under the stewardship of a new Chair, Sandra Hamrouni, who brings a diverse range of experience and skills to the role.
