Help provide 500 scholarships for schools of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL) carries out its ministry in the midst of the conflict in Palestine/Israel. The church is committed to a hopeful, sustainable and peaceful future for the whole community. ELCJHL schools welcome children of all faiths, primarily Christian and Muslim. The schools provide education, job skills and leadership formation.
The ELCJHL is responsible for four K-12 schools which serve more than 2,000 students with the help of nearly 200 full-and part-time educators.
Gender balance and equality is an emphasis of ELCJHL Schools. All schools learn together in a co-educational framework in which 44% of the students are female and 56% are male. Peace Education and Interfaith Dialogue are also key emphases of ELCJHL Schools. Muslim and Christian populations in ELCJHL Schools reflect closely the populations of their communities.

The ELCIC and Canadian Lutheran World Relief support many projects with the ELCJHL ministries, including the schools. A scholarship of $1400 will allow a student to attend school for one year. As with all schools, steady enrollment of students paying tuition helps the ELCJHL schools to be sustainable and effective.
