Closing statement

Supporters have been aware for some time of DSMT’s plans to close the charity, first founded in 2005 in memory of Dominic.  We are very proud and very grateful for all that has been achieved in his name. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this.

DSMT officially closed in November 2021.   Our website will continue for some time with updates on the progress of DSMT-funded students still studying at Dar Al Tifl School or at university.

Through our final grants awarded in 2020 and 2021 we have been able to fund:

  • Twelve school scholarships for disadvantaged girls to complete their schooling at the Dar Al-Tifel School to 2022. [In addition of course to funding all existing school and HE scholarships to their completion].
  • A memorial at Dar Al Tifel School to mark our long and successful partnership. This lists all the school and HE scholarship holders since 2007.

A new four-year HE scholarship for a disadvantaged young woman in the West Bank in partnership with UK based charity Friends of Birzeit University (Fobzu) who are administering the scholarship on behalf of DSMT.  You can read about the award winner here.

  • A significant closing donation to Fobzu to support their scholarship programme with Birzeit University.

Thank you to all our supporters for your loyalty and generosity over the last sixteen  years.
