Introduction
Jihad Shojaeha has created a model to improve access to university education for poor and underprivileged students while ensuring and instilling seeds of social responsibility among youth. Through Jihad’s Student-to-Student Initiative, he works with partners to fund the education of underprivileged students to attend university in Palestine. Instead of paying back the money, students are required to give back to the community, by teaching and providing mentorship to primary and secondary school students in rural, poor, and marginalized areas.
