About Us

Since its estab­lish­ment BDF has been keen on achiev­ing the goals set forth by the Devel­op­ment Ini­tia­tive and on mov­ing clos­er to real­iz­ing the core vision of Mr. Khoury’s Initiative.

Efforts begin with the sup­port­ing the restora­tion of the Nativ­i­ty Church, the reha­bil­i­ta­tion and beau­ti­fi­ca­tion of Manger Square in Beth­le­hem, ele­vat­ing Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties and con­tin­ue with the man­age­ment of Sol­id Waste through­out the Beth­le­hem Gov­er­norate. The qual­i­ty of pub­lic life is enhanced through the intro­duc­tion of sev­er­al com­mu­ni­ty sports and children’s play­grounds through­out the munic­i­pal­i­ties of Beit Sahour, Beit Jala and Al-Doha.

Our foun­da­tion con­tin­ues to have strong rela­tion­ships with region­al and inter­na­tion­al orga­ni­za­tions includ­ing the Arab Fund for Eco­nom­ic and Social Devel­op­ment, the Arab Mon­i­to­ry Fund, the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment, UNESCO, DFID, AFD, the Quar­tet, the World Bank and the Wel­fare Asso­ci­a­tion. We wel­come your sup­port and feed­back geared towards enhanc­ing the imple­men­ta­tion of the ini­tia­tive vision.
