Supporting Students in Hebron

In these dark times, we write to share with you a ray of light from our friends in Hebron, Palestine, as an example of a concrete way Tree of Life is providing educational assistance to young people in Palestine. In 2022 Sadeq Sider participated in Tree of Life’s fall speaker program highlighting the city of Hebron (Al Khalil).  Sadeq graduated from college in Palestine with a major in English Language and Literature. He has been teaching English through local centers but his hours were limited, and he needed additional income to help support his family after his father lost his job. Sadeq approached Tree of Life for financial support to offer his own self-designed English courses to supplement the limited hours of education Palestinian youth are now restricted to. Sadeq has now completed one 4-week course, and Tree of Life will be funding another course beginning soon with a different group of students.

We are amazed and humbled by the positive spirit and resilience of the Palestinian people in the face of such horrific oppression. It is an honor to support their efforts. The English class that our friend Sadeq is teaching is possible thanks to the generous donations that the Tree of Life community has made toward our scholarship fund. Your financial solidarity makes a difference.

We encourage you to watch these two videos that Sadeq prepared and to read more about his course.
