The Hands Up Project’s main sponsor is Sheika Maryam Khalid Al Thani. Through her generous monthly contributions we are able to employ our founder and coordinator, Nick Bilbrough, on a full time basis. Nick’s duties include training and observing new volunteers, creating materials for online training sessions, training HUP teachers in Palestine and Jordan, promoting the project internationally in schools and at conferences, administering the project and keeping records, and maintaining the website, Youtube channel and Facebook group.
We are also very grateful for the sponsorship provided by Greenall Florent Books. This covers the expenses involved in bringing the winners of the playwriting competition to London, and for occasional trips to Palestine and Jordan for face to face training with teachers and children there.
Our other expenses (technological requirements, Zoom Pro- account subscriptions, stationery, printing etc) are covered by the generous donations of individuals.
