Reach Education Fund is a nonprofit organization founded by Mr. Walid

educate, and inspire Palestinian students through scholarship and mentorship.

exam grades but can’t attend college because they have financial difficulties.
Reach Education Fund helps those students in continuing their education and
achieving their goals. On February 22 nd they came to Memphis for the second time
seeking the communities support. Ghada Shurrab and Yahya Qbaaja were two of
the students who came to talk about how much this organization has helped
