CHILDREN OF PEACE WINTER APPEAL 2013/14 SPONSOR A PALESTINIAN CHILD’S EDUCATION IN
We seek your help in sponsoring thirty-five economically deprived children at a wonderful
school in Bethlehem, in the Palestinian West Bank.
HOPE FLOWERS SCHOOL, BETHLEHEM is a much admired affiliate of Children of Peace.
It is a true beacon of hope for the future.
The school teaches peace and academic studies, citizenship, social and community
skills to children aged 5-14.
It works with trauma recovery and special needs education, whilst also helping to
de-escalate violence and extremism.
Just £400/$640 will support the education of a child at Hope Flowers School
At this time of celebration and reflection, we invite you to SPONSOR THE EDUCATION
of at least one child for just one year. The children suffer many hardships and need
your help now.
Many of the children who attend the school need your help. 80% go home to refugee
camps and 33% have parents who are unemployed. The School is fully independent -
not funded by religious, government or international organisations.
Land seizures, travel restrictions, high unemployment, a constrained economy and
other problems mean that many families in the Bethlehem region struggle to survive.
Some families have lost a lot - unemployment, illness or loss of a wage-earner -
and it can take time for a family to recover from such a setback.
As part of Children of Peace's commitment to improving the lives of Israeli and Palestinian
children we are inviting you to sponsor a pupil from Hope Flowers School. Just £400/$640
will pay for a child's education for a year. By sponsoring at least one disadvantaged
child you can help change a life and give hope for a better future.
Wearing a school uniform is a requirement in the West Bank. Travel, books, teaching
salaries, resources can be costly.
YOU can help the children by either donating directly or by raising funds through
family, friends, colleagues or your local community.
REMEMBER - £400 or $640 can change a child’s life forever
