OUR CHARITY


Mission

To contribute to a sense of direction, purpose, and meaning for all Palestinians by supporting the younger generation in their pursuit of higher and further education.

What We Do

We raise funds to provide scholarships for students who are selected via an application process and who live — or have lived — in the village of Deir Istya, in the West Bank of Palestine.

Vision

We want all Palestinians to feel valued and respected.

Education improves employability and raises living standards, and helps to sustain and strengthen Palestinian identity and culture.

Education brightens the mind, promotes self-discovery and growth, and offers hope and prospects for a better life. Perhaps for these reasons it continues to be something that Palestinians attribute great importance to, despite their daily hardships.

Inspiration

Spring Up Foundation was founded in the memory of Deir Istiya resident Naima Zidan, after she lost her life to cancer in 2013.

From a young age, Naima worked tirelessly to improve the rights of women and the underprivileged. Although her activism was entirely peaceful and non-violent, her own education was terminated when she was arrested by the Israeli authorities as a result of her pursuit for social justice. From then on her movements were restricted, preventing her from completing her degree.

Naima was a passionate believer in equality and basic human rights and the universal right to study was particularly close to her heart.
