The amount we're raising is for two years as we already have a sponsor who has graciously agreed to pay for one year of Ayham's education.
Meet Ayham: a promising Palestinian fashion designer based in Ramallah. Ayham was recently accepted into Central Saint Martins in London to study ‘Fashion Design Womenswear,’ and will hopefully start this coming fall, September 2021.
Central Saint Martins is an internationally-renowned centre for arts and design education has one of the most established reputations in fashion education and is considered a global leader in its field. The art school has won BoF’s Global Fashion School Bachelors Ranking every year since launch, as well as the Masters Ranking in 2016.
Central Saint Martins has some of the highest admission standards, and Ayham’s acceptance is a testament to his undeniable talent. Pursuing an education in design will enable Ayham to challenge and help raise the often-overlooked Palestinian identity in design and global industries.

We are currently in the process of raising funds to secure Ayham’s future in Central Saint Martins. We are looking to raise as much capital as possible as Ayham's financial means are limited. I have attached Ayham's expense sheet for reference. I would greatly appreciate if you can help spread the word and together secure a promising design future for a talented individual.
"I'm looking forward to pursuing my education in fashion design, concentrating on developing my creative narrative while focusing on experimental and artistic research. Acquiring this degree will allow me to challenge the design scene in Palestine by building on traditional techniques to develop new sustainable methods for production. That is to help raise the design and industrial independence in Palestine and integrate the often-overlooked Palestinian identity in the global industry."
