SUPPORTING EDUCATION IN PALESTINE
The Friends of Pioneers organization is a non-profit, 501(c)3 established in 2018 to support the work of Pioneers Baccalaureate School in Nablus, Palestine. Friends of Pioneers organizes and runs projects designed to serve students, teachers, and families in Nablus, improving education resources and opportunities in the region.
OUR CORE Objectives
Here at Friends of Pioneers, we have divided our main mission into three distinct objectives: Fundraising, Teacher Recruitment and Training, and Community Building. These goals were put together in collaboration with our Palestinian partners on the ground, and they are based on a careful evaluation on how we can best serve the Pioneers community. Read more about each objective below!
