Last month, ILAC was one of the main sponsors at the 2nd Annual Daughters for Life Foundation Gala, a Canadian charity that provides educational and leadership opportunities for girls and women in the Middle East.  In 2012, ILAC pledged $200,000 to DFL as part of its commitment to promoting friendship and understanding between people of all faiths and cultures.

This upcoming academic year DFL will be offering scholarships to students at several Canadian institutions, including ILAC academic pathway partners Trent University and Humber College.  As part of its agreement with DFL, ILAC has promised 10 one-year ILAC Academic Pathway program scholarships for female students from the Middle East.

The Daughters for Life Foundation was established by Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, whose three daughters were killed during the war in Gaza in 2009.  In spite of his enormous loss, Dr. Abuelaish overcame his despair by writing the award-winning book, “I Shall Not Hate,” which describes his philosophy of peace and forgiveness.  He believes that lasting pace in the Middle East depends on empowering young women through education – regardless of nationality, ethnicity or religion.
