You First Gaza is a non-profit organization dedicated to bridging the education gap and providing free access to quality education for underprivileged students in Gaza. We firmly believe that education is a fundamental right and should not be limited by financial barriers. Our mission is to empower disadvantaged children and youth by equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary for a brighter future.
At You First Gaza, our vision is to create a society where every child has equal access to education, regardless of their socioeconomic background. We aim to break the cycle of poverty by providing educational opportunities that enable students to reach their full potential and contribute positively to their communities.
Scholarship Program: We offer scholarships to academically talented and deserving students who come from financially challenged backgrounds. These scholarships cover tuition fees, textbooks, and other educational expenses, ensuring that students can focus on their studies without the burden of financial constraints.
After-School Tutoring: Recognizing the importance of additional support outside the classroom, we provide after-school tutoring programs. Experienced tutors assist students in various subjects, helping them understand difficult concepts, complete assignments, and prepare for exams. We also offer mentoring and guidance to inspire and motivate students to excel academically.
Computer Literacy Program: In today's digital world, computer literacy is essential. We offer computer literacy courses to introduce students to basic computer skills, including word processing, internet usage, and programming fundamentals. By equipping students with these skills, we aim to enhance their employability and future prospects.
Vocational Training: We understand that not all students may choose a traditional academic path. To cater to diverse interests and talents, we offer vocational training programs in collaboration with local industries. These programs provide hands-on training in fields such as carpentry, electrical work, plumbing, and more, ensuring that students have viable career options.
Community Outreach: We actively engage with the local community to raise awareness about the importance of education. Through workshops, seminars, and awareness campaigns, we strive to promote education as a means of social empowerment and development.
