Light Upon Light empowers those who deeply desire knowledge, but are constrained by circumstances. Thus LUL is proud to join hands with Dar Al Quran Al Karim Wa Sunnah, Gaza, under the flagship project Step for Future. Seven premier universities of Gaza will be partnering to execute this noble mission.
Step for Future Project aims to equip deserving and needy Palestinian female students to complete their higher education successfully, without any roadblocks.
The Gaza Strip suffers from a well known economic blockade. But its largely unknown that most families, burdened by steep private university fees, can only afford to educate one or two of their children, priority often given to males. Existing scholarships cater to mere 40% of the needy. Thus, many female students are stripped off the right to pursue further studies. Their ambitions, intelligence and desire to obtain further education are cruelly cut short. This is a grave loss not only for the females, but for the society as a whole.
Provide full scholarship to 21 needy and deserving female students aiming to pursue bachelors degree (4 years) and diploma (2 years) in seven premier universities, throughout the duration of their study
Fulfil the passion of the female students to complete higher education, and reduce the financial burden on their families
Empower the female students to use their intelligence and talents in various fields, and subsequently become mothers who are flagbearers of transformation and knowledge
Give the female students the confidence to develop themselves, and actively contribute to building their communities and societies
If your heart has ached at the pain of Gaza and its inhabitants, here is a chance to do your bit!
The Prophet of Allah (peace be upon him) said: "When a man dies, his deeds come to an end except for three things: Sadaqah Jariyah (ceaseless charity); a knowledge which is beneficial, or a virtuous descendant who prays for him."
