Friends of Deir Ibzi'a (FoDI)

Address    2132 Prince Street
          Berkeley, CA   94705

Formed when activists with the International Solidarity Movement volunteered at a children's summer camp in the village of Deir Ibzi'a in 2002. The camp was the vision of Deeb Kamal, a member of the local community who was acutely aware of a need to both lift the children's spirits and create a lifeline of hope via an investment in learning and education. When the activists returned home to the Bay Area they continued their commitment to the youth of Deir Ibzi'a by raising money for scholarships. To date they have supported 27 students in their pursuit of higher education.
