Sharing with those in need is one of the most basic human impulses, the most visible manifestation of caring for another person. Through AST, our donors, partners and sponsors have the opportunity to share with our students and their home communities their belief in the critical importance of higher education for developing a more peaceful, prosperous Middle East, and their readiness to act upon this belief in order to contribute to its realisation. In turn, our students will share with us their stories, their experiences, their culture, and their determination to succeed.
