The Dignity Loans Program


Helping to create employment and stability for families living in difficult economic situations.

Since June 2014, the Fund has been supporting a program for people working to create a better economic future for themselves and their families in Palestine. We support the initiative of our Ambassador in the region who is providing interest-free loans to individuals and co-operative projects that have the ability to increase income, create jobs, and serve the community.
