McCabe Educational Trust Projects
MET trustees meet regularly and decide the projects the Trust will support and the level of funding. Most of our giving is structured and regular. In the Holy Land, we support the Jeel al Amal Boys Home in Bethany and the Al Shurooq Blind School in Bethlehem with regular, sustainable grants. Further afield, our third joint partner projects are Dr Graham’s Homes in India and Dadhuwa school in Nepal. We aim to allocate three quarters of our available funds to these three core projects.
The other quarter of our income, we give in smaller grants to a range of projects. All are Christian run, but help people of all faiths, without discrimination. Many are people we have met on our travels, and often individuals and church parties make a personal connection and create a supportive link. In these cases, MET acts as a conduit to efficiently remit funds to a partner project. Recently, we have supported the Bethlehem Rehabilitation Centre, The Jerusalem Princess Basma Centre, The Anglican Deaf School in Jordan and Society Biliki in Georgia.
