VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
For students who prefer not to go to advance to college but instead to learn a trade or skill, the FFHL made the decision to expand the University Scholarship Program. Vocational scholarships for Holy Land Christians who want to become electricians, carpenters, auto-mechanics, plumbers, telecommunications experts, or even chefs make a reality from what used to be a dream.
“WE ARE SUPREMELY PROUD OF THIS NEW ENDEAVOR.
IT NOW GIVES AN OPPORTUNITY,
AS WELL AS HOPE,
TO THESE YOUNG CHRISTIAN STUDENTS
WHO HAVE DIFFERENT GIFTS AND CAPABILITIES
WHICH IN THE END WILL PROVE BENEFICIAL
AND THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY.”
-Fr. Pizzaballa, OFM, Chairman of FFHL.
The FFHL, in its quest to help stem the Christian exodus, is enrolling students in two-year vocational & technical schools such as the Notre Dame School of Cooking in Jerusalem.
In addition to an accredited diploma in their trade, the FFHL will give each student a tool kit tailored their particular field so they will be able to immediately secure work in their communities.
“WE MUST CONTINUE TO OPEN ALL AVENUES OF WORK FOR THE CHRISTIAN YOUTH IN ORDER TO GIVE THEM OPPORTUNITIES FOR HIGHER EDUCATION WHETHER IT BE ON A COLLEGE LEVEL OR AT A VOCATIONAL SCHOOL LEVEL. EACH WILL PROVIDE THEM A MEANS OF SECURING FUTURE EMPLOYMENT AND THUS GIVING THEM HOPE.”
The Foundation has been able to provide excellent opportunities for vocational students in the Holy Land through the generosity of people like you.
But there are still many more students who need our help.
