The Society for Promotion of Female Education in the East was a Protestant Christian missionary society that was involved in sending workers to China during the late Qing Dynasty and to other Asian countries. The society was at work in Nazareth in Ottoman Palestine in the latter half of the 19th century.

Nazareth[edit]

In the higher part of the town (Nazareth, Israel) on the north is the English Hospital, a well-built structure; outside the town, halfway up the summit of the range, a very large orphanage was being built in 1875 for the Society for Promotion of Female Education in the East.[1] This building is currently the St Margaret's Hospice for women a sort of hostel.[2]
