As some of you may, or may not know my personal purpose in life is "Igniting the Fire Within".

In the short version that means creating environments for myself and others to find their inner fire, unleash their full potential and take on the world.

Education is the foundation for all of this.


Over 530,000 Palestinian Refugees attend one of 708 UNRWA schools. These schools create safe spaces for learning where children can grow up and dream of a better world. A place where a child can breathe. 

With my target of $2,500, we can support an entire classroom of children to learn, explore and thrive!


There would be no present more valued to me than your help in achieving this. Being able to educate children is a huge passion for me. Education has opened so many doors for me and now it is our turn to give this gift to many more. I really will appreciate and cherish this for the rest of my life more than any other gift


I share with you 2 quotes from Tata Madiba (Nelson Mandela for my non-South Africans):


“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

"We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians."


Looking forward to your help in achieving this!

Established by the UN General Assembly in 1949, our mission is to assist Palestine refugees in achieving their full potential until a just and lasting solution to the refugee crisis is found. The Agency provides services to Palestine refugees in Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and the West Bank (including East Jerusalem).


Over the past seven decades, Palestine refugees have experienced extremes in violence, suffering and injustice. As a result, they are confronted with daunting human development and protection challenges, which stand to arrest their significant potential. Humanitarian conditions across much of the UNRWA areas of operation are grave, exacerbated by protracted conflict and the lack of political progress. Read more about our mission and achievments.
