MORE ABOUT RAMALLAH FRIENDS SCHOOL
Ramallah Friends, founded by American Quakers in 1869 (151 years ago!), is a co-ed K-12 school that provides a first-class, peace-oriented education to children of all faiths. It serves Palestinian families in the town of Ramallah in the West Bank.
Spring Fling is a fundraising event to provide scholarships for multiple students at Ramallah Friends School. For about 40 years, this school has been a main cause for our Meeting, and each year our goal is to raise $10,000, which is the equivalent of three Ramallah Friends scholarships.
Ramallah Friends School strives to be a leading educational institution in the Palestinian community, seeking to promote a constant search for God to all human situations, and to cultivate ethical, moral and spiritual values.
