4th Annual Palestinian Pub Quiz for Nablus Students
It’s that time of the year again – time to get reading wikipedia, brush up on your general knowledge, and come to our 4th annual pub quiz to raise money for Palestinian university students (Al Najah University in Nablus in the West Bank) and the Al Basma Arab Womens Union Special Needs School Summer Camp in Bethlehem.
When: Thursday, 26th May 2011
When: Take your seats @7:30, quiz begins @ 8pm
Where: Break for the Border, Stephen Street, Dublin 2
Teams of 4-5 (€ 10 per team member). We will have a raffle on the night also, with lots of prizes.
Thanks to your previous donations, we have sponsored 15 students (4 of whom have graduated) in the last three years. Students there have great difficulty in accessing education due to the restrictions of the occupation in place, not least in obtaining funding to actually go to university. Semester costs per student are from US$ 400 to US$ 1000 approximately, and we would like to continue the sponsorship for both the special needs school and the students this year also. We need about 5000 € to do this.
About us:- This is an unaffiliated event arising from a group of us who visited Palestine in February 2008. There were four of us who decided to do something positive for Palestine after the visit, and while it is not a lot in global terms, we feel that doing a little is better than otherwise doing nothing.
