Concise Summary: Help us pitch this solution! Provide an explanation within 3-4 short sentences.

Jehad has created a model to improve access to university education for poor and underprivileged students while ensuring and instilling seeds of social responsibility among youth. Through Jehad’s initiative Student-to-Student Initiative, he is working with partners to fund the education for underprivileged students to attend university in Palestine. Instead of having to pay back the money, the students are required to give back to the community by teaching and providing mentorship to primary and secondary school students in rural, poor, and marginalized areas.

About Project

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Through the Student to Student Initiative, Jehad is funding the education for underprivileged students to attend university in Palestine. Instead of having to pay back the money, the students are required to give back to the community by teaching and providing mentorship to primary and secondary school students in rural, poor, and marginalized areas. Since poor students don’t have the luxury of hiring private tutors, a common trend in the Middle East given the poor quality of public school education, Jehad has the university students create and run tutoring programs for primary and secondary schoolchildren throughout Palestine.
