Commitment to Action

Mar Elias H.S. Technology Upgrade, Israel/Palestine

Commitment by

F.I.S.H Foundation, Inc.

In 2010, the F.I.S.H. Foundation, Inc. committed to provide academic and research technology for the biotechnology, physics, and computer labs of Mar Elias High School in Ibillin, Israel. This Palestinian-founded school needed upgraded equipment, ranging from measuring instruments to computers for data analysis, to help students excel on Israel's standardized matriculation exams. State-of-the-art equipment helps students implement theories and skills taught in classrooms. Better test scores help Mar Elias graduates qualify for the limited Israeli university slots open to Arabs in high-tech fields. Having advanced technological skills also opens doors for all MEHS graduates to meaningful employment and positive community involvement.
As of April 2011, Mar Elias Educational Institutions (MEEI) purchased tools and equipment for their biotechnology, physics, and computer labs.
