Friends of Birzeit University (UK)
The work of Birzeit University is supported by our Friends’ association, based in the UK. Over the past 15 years, Friends of Birzeit University (FOBZU) in the UK have secured over £1.6 million from British and European funding agencies for essential development programs run by Birzeit University. This has included the provision of professional diploma programs in Schools and Family Counseling, in collaboration with the Centre for Continuing Education, in order to strengthen the professional skills of local mental health counselors and social workers.
Working with UK parliamentarians, the media, universities and schools, FOBZU also raises awareness about the many obstacles to education for Palestinians living under military occupation and campaigns for their rights to be upheld.
