LE.O is committed to the young women and men of The West Bank, Lebanon, Gaza, Jordan and beyond. We are dedicated to the work of empowering thoughtful, driven and brilliant Palestinian students to transcend poverty, violence and under-resourced schools to pursue their dreams of Higher Education.
Our Mission is to help prepare Palestine’s future scientists, policymakers, educators and entrepreneurs.
We believe that Education and Cultural Exchange is the essential path to Peace, Stability and Development.
Established as a new non-profit organization in August 2015, we serve bright young Palestinians, women and men, from the West Bank, Gaza, Lebanon and Jordan by securing and managing scholarships to American colleges and universities. We enhance personal development through guidance and academic mentoring. As a 501.c.3 charitable educational foundation we work in partnership with U.S. colleges, businesses, host families and relief organizations to make our mission a reality.
"My thanks are not only for LE•O’s efforts that exceed what is required, but also for the trust that you have put in me so far. May I never let you down."
