Journeys Beginning

UJIA runs a means-tested bursary scheme for applicants who cannot meet the full cost of the tour. Each year around 30% of young people are not able to go on the trip of a lifetime, a transformational month for 16 year olds. http://www.ujia.org/what-we-do/engage-israel/israel-tour/

A month in Israel with a youth movement can be beyond some young people's and their families means. An Israel Tour bursary means that no young person is left behind, and no participant will not miss tour for financial reasons.


Each year we struggle to raise the £200,000 needed for the shortfall in bursaries to be made up. This, along with text campaigns and some generous major donors will meet that target.
