McCabe Educational Trust Projects

MET trustees meet three times a year and agree on the projects the Trust will support and the level of funding. Some 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, in India, our third partner project is the Anand Niwas Boys Home. In all three cases, we are the major benefactor and our quarterly donation helps pay basic running costs. Three quarters of our income is allocated in this way.

The other quarter of our income is given in smaller grants to a larger number of projects.  All are Christian run, but help people of all faiths without discrimination. Many recipients are people we have met on our travels and are now supported by specific individuals and churches who have developed a personal connection. In these cases MET acts as a conduit to efficiently remit funds to the partner project.  A Christmas gift to needy families in Jerusalem and Bethlehem is a highlight of our year.

Regular newsletters keep supporters updated with what we are doing.  To read more and sign up to receive this newsletter CLICK HERE
