Throughout this advent season, Opportunity Palestine is dedicated to raising funds for student scholarships at ELCJHL schools in Palestine in order to offset the financial turmoil from the current crisis in the region. In-person school is being disrupted regularly, barricades have been erected, significantly affecting travel for students, faculty and staff, and tourism that supplies the livelihoods for many of our school families has been halted. All this has created a crisis for the continuing operation of the schools of the ELCJHL. In the spirit of hope, peace, joy, and love this advent season, we invite you to contribute to the assurance that students —whether Christian or Muslim—who live in the occupied West Bank have access to continued safe and prosperous opportunities through education.
