How to Help

WE  NEED  YOU

PEACE IN ENGLISH

NEW AT MAR ELIAS EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS

Another peace initiative from Archbishop Em Elias Chacour

A dedicated English room is being established in the new Learning Centre on the campus. ASHRAY is supporting this initiative which will offer English language facilities and activities to the entire interfaith community.

As the language of international diplomacy and increasingly of general international communications it is essential that as many Arab Israelis as possible are able to articulate their situation in English. Please give as generously as you can to help them by equiping this English Room.

DONATIONS by cheque please payable to ‘ASHRAY’, Lyngarth, Front Street, Rothbury, Northumberand, NE65 7UU, UK

(For donations in currencies other than GB pounds please make cheques payable to ‘MEEI’ and send to the same address)

English Room Mar 2017

The basic English Room awaiting computers, software, programmes, smartboard and DVD’s from ASHRAY for studies to begin.                           31.03 2017

A pdf version of this appeal is available for anyone wishing to publish this in a newsletter or other publication.

PIGRIMAGE OVER?

Back From a Pilgrimage to Israel?

Got some odd shekels from a previous visit to Israel languishing in the bottom of a drawer. Ashray can put them to good use at Mar Elias Educational Institutions.

Organise a Prayer Meeting or Study Group

Leaflets

Ask Ashray for posters to put on notice boards or leaflets to leave on display for people to take away.  They can be emailed to print out or be posted to you.

Student Exchanges

Students taking part in student exchanges from Mar Elias Educational Institutions all speak English, Hebrew and Arabic and some, other languages as well.  The teacher who organises these exchanges is very experienced in this field and is keen to find more opportunties for more of his students.  Mar Elias students visit and stay with UK students and later the UK students will go to stay with the Mar Elias students.  It is a marvellous opportunity for boys and girls in their formative years to have a positive experience, finding friendships and points of mutual understanding in another culture.

If you think you may be able to form a link in this way, please contact Audrey at office.ashray@yahoo.co.uk

Donate

Lastly but very importantly, do please consider giving financial assistance to this very important and unique peace initiative, educating the children of the Holy Land from diverse backgrounds to provide a more peaceful and secure future with respect and equal rights for all Israel’s citizens.  The cost of further development, maintaining current buildings and updating equipment is considerable.
