Sana Foundation our partner 

The Sana Foundation is the partner of the Foundation Friends of Nazareth in Israel. Their aim is similar to that of the Foundation:


"awarding grants to Palestinian female students".

This is why since 1985 the Foundation Friends of Nazareth has supported Palestinian students with scholarships for higher education. To ensure the continuation of this program the Sana Foundation was set up as our partner organization in Israel a few years ago. The boards of both foundations are now reaping the rewards. At the moment the scholarship program comprises ten students, four of them selected by the Sana Foundation. One of these get her grant directly from the Sana Foundation: the repayments of loans by graduated scholarship students. The other three are still supported by the Foundation Friends of Nazareth. The Foundation Friends of Nazareth supports another six students, who started their studies in the previous years. Read here the last impressions of the students.
