On Tuesday 10 October 2017 Anne Dix, ASHA Office Director at USAID and Raymond Jennings, Financial Management Specialist for Africa and the Middle East included a stop at Bethlehem University in their first trip to the Middle East.
Since 1977 USAID-ASHA (American Schools and Hospitals Abroad) has provided more than $6,800,000 for the construction or renovation of every building on campus and $900,000 for equipment and software. Since 1988 ASHA support has come through Christian Brothers Conference in Washington DC. An additional $300,000 from USAID (US Agency for International Development) developed curriculum material and detailed architectural plans of the Institute of Hotel Management and Tourism. This does not include ASHA’s most recent grant to support the construction of a new Visitor’s and Fitness Center at Bethlehem University to be constructed next year.
