The Daughters for Life Foundation was established in memory of Bessan, Mayar, and Aya, and their love of life and learning as well as their hopes and dreams for a better educated world. The Foundation believes that lasting peace in the Middle East depends on the empowerment of girls and young women through education, which will allow them to become agents of change for the betterment of life throughout the Middle East. To that end, they provide scholarships and awards for aspiring young women in order to enable them to pursue studies that would otherwise be inaccessible to them.
