Be’er Sheva (TPS) – A new student center for Bedouin women students has opened at Ben Gurion University of the Negev and will serve as a safe “warm home away from home” for Bedouin women studying at the university.

About 70% of the nearly 450 Bedouins who study at Ben Gurion University are women. The center, which is a joint initiative of BGU President Professor Rivka Carmi and the Arnow family of the United States, will serve to assist Bedouin women in a number of areas including helping students to better speak, read and write in Hebrew as well as provide academic guidance and professional support.
