SANA Foundation our partner 

SANA Foundation is our partner NGO in Israel. Its aim is to award scholarships to Palestinian students, the same principles as those of the Stichting. The current board of the SANA Foundation has been working closely with Friends Nazareth since 2017.


SANA is the Arab word for ‘the Light’ and the letters as such stand in Arabic for ‘Academic Women Together'. This name was given to the foundation at its constituent meeting on 14 February 2009.
