  • Located on prime real estate in the hustling bustling city of Ramallah…
  • ...which is in occupied Palestine and about ten miles from Jerusalem …
  • …are two wonderful schools where Christians and Muslims learn together and grow in understanding.

  • Take a walk through the gardens, an oasis of peace and open to the community.
  • ASHA = American Schools and Hospitals Abroad
    In the US, 2 cents of every tax dollar goes to foreign aid. A small portion of that 2 cents is for ASHA projects in developing countries.
    In the past 12 years, FUM has received millions of grant $$ to improve Ramallah Friends School. This photo depicts the opening of a new classroom building in the fall of 2009.
