Last year, to mark our 10th anniversary in 2015, we had a concerted fund-raising drive to secure the future of our two scholarship programmes with the Dar El Tifl School, East Jerusalem for at least the next five years.
School Scholarship Programme
The DSMT School Scholarship Programme aims to fund at least three scholarships annually to cover all education and living costs for able but disadvantaged girls to complete 11th and 12th grade and take the national tawjihi examinations at age eighteen. 31 school scholarships have been awarded to date. 24 girls have completed their schooling, and seven are currently still at school.
