Help us to keep KTH Alive!

For SIX YEARS, the Know Thy Heritage (KTH) Leadership Program has been bringing young Palestinians from the Diaspora HOME to Palestine to deepen their knowledge of their heritage and culture, and to build the leadership skills we urgently need to ensure a secure, peaceful and prosperous Palestine.

KTH’s mission is first and foremost to unify the Palestinian Diaspora in common struggle for peace, human rights and civil equality in Palestine, and to encourage them to invest their talent, skills and resources into building our shared homeland. With the nation of Palestine under significant constraint and duress, ours is a mission that relies on the hope, determination and good will of those who are freer to affect change.

Over the years, our program has had incredible results. We have inspired dozens of our KTH alumni to raise funds for refugee camps, to launch community-based initiatives, to raise awareness in their communities, and to volunteer their talents and time in the service of Palestine. We have seen the fruit of our hard work, and we are heartened by it every day.


One of KTH’s major donors recently informed us that they will not be able to contribute to this year’s program as planned. Unless we are able to raise funds quickly, this last minute decision will have an immediate impact on the 2017 delegation who is slated to arrive in just one month!

With so many negative stereotypes circulating about Palestine and its people, KTH is a critical program that actively counters harmful beliefs by educating people from around the world about how they can help foster peace and security in Palestine.

We humbly ask, and indeed, urgently plea that each and every one of you to help us to raise the $25,000 needed to cover the costs of this upcoming delegation.  Please lend a hand by donating, and by spreading the word about our campaign so that others can be a part of the solution. We need all the help we can get!

Thank you in advance for your much needed financial support, enthusiasm, and love for Palestine!
