  • Support movements like the Peace Factory that are genuinely committed to dialogue and understanding among Middle Eastern people.
  • Support health care initiatives that involve cooperation between Israelis and Palestinians, such as Project Rozana and Road to Recovery.
  • Support groups such as the Geneva Initiative that seek compromise and peace between the two groups.
  • Create a scholarship fund for Palestinian students to attend SFU.
  • Engage/fund joint research with Palestinian academic institutions.
