Ahed Academics Assn. for the Development of the Negev’s Arab Society

Ahed Academics Association for the development of the Negev’s Arab society, was founded in 2006, by a group of Arab-Bedouin scholars and researchers from the Negev to improve the socio-cultural and economic situation of the Bedouin society in the Negev – the poorest community in Israel – through education. Therefore, in 2009, the Ahed High School for Science opened its doors committed to offer Bedouin youth from communities throughout the Negev, quality education that will enable them to successfully pursue academic studies and integrate in Israeli society as equal, contributing, high-achieving members. A decade later, the School has the highest average of matriculation rate in the Negev, nearly 800 graduates and 85% placement in academic institutes. This success is a result of the dedication of Ahed’s Board of Directors (all volunteers) composed of regarded scholars, scientists, and physicians, and the generous support of individual donors and foundations like you. Nevertheless, the School is facing serious challenges: it operates in rented buildings, the students are bussed daily from 15 villages and towns throughout the Negev, it has a standard high school budget allotted by the Education Ministry with no additional public funding for rent, transportation, scholarships, innovation nor for the school’s development.
