University education for Palestinian women .
“University has opened up new horizons in my life and introduced me to a whole world of knowledge, friendship and enjoyment. Being a student has also given me greater self-confidence. I’m more able to express myself and to talk about my experiences and my ambition has grown. I’m a lot stronger psychologically, culturally, financially and educationally. I am grateful to the Sheffield women’s group for giving me this opportunity to learn and to prove that I can take responsibility for myself and my family.”

Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund supports Palestinian women in Gaza to enter higher education through a yearly scholarship. It was set up in 2007 and currently supports 65 Palestinian women in the Gaza Strip by paying their university entrance fees. Due to some very large donations received recently, SPWSF is looking to expand its activities to support women in the West Bank as well as in Gaza.
Whilst based in Sheffield it has supporters across the UK, in particular in Bolton and Saddleworth.
One year’s university fees is around £300.
