In spring 2015, around 30 Shawwa family members met in Amman, and decided to establish an Education Fund, out of a genuine sense of responsibility towards those less fortunate in the family with the potential to create positive long-term advances at an individual level in particular and for the family in general.
And on May 5th 2016, the "Constituent" General Assembly met at the Amman Four Seasons Hotel, where the Memorandum of Articles of Association was approved and a Board of Directors was elected. Thus, the Shawwa Education Fund is now officially launched.
Although most of the beneficiaries are in Gaza, many are in diaspora, and since education is at the heart of nearly everything we value as Palestinians, contrasted with the grim reality of inadequate educational opportunities for many of our family's youth, our Fund aspires to give such valuable opportunity to all we can possibly reach.
The Fund will cover all expenses for vocational studies, undergraduate studies, and graduate (Masters and Doctorate) studies in Palestine and the Arab region, while in the western countries the Fund will only be for post-graduate studies.
