Here's How it Works

LE•O embodies a unique investment opportunity to develop, support, and expand cross-cultural education for academically-inclined disadvantaged young Palestinians from the West Bank, Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon and beyond. Upon graduation from top-tier colleges/universities, these scholars will return to their home regions as leaders with vast international networks, prepared to advance culturally appropriate solutions to ending poverty and promoting peace and prosperity.

The most unique attribute of LE•O is the exclusive and inclusive assembly of Palestinians from their many different regions into one program. By inclusion, they are raised up together, and will by this association be prepared to work together for all Palestinians, united as the future leadership of Palestinian society. The prior experience and institutional memories of the executive staff, officers, and board members, gained through predecessor organizations, contribute greatly to the LE•O operational plan that focuses and multiplies the resources of partners around the world.

LE•O is committed to a cross-cultural staff and cross-cultural Board of Directors comprised of academics and cultural guides, financial experts, and alumni who have a shared educational experience and a vested personal interest in the future of the region.
