We continue to help Palestinian women find ways to earn an income and build financial independence by helping them develop small businesses.
In recent months, NEF has worked with over 30 women in the Nablus-Asira and Jenin-Qabatiya clusters of villages to identify business opportunities in their communities – including in agriculture and crafts.
Twenty-three women participated in our multi-day training workshop in Asira. The women learned about microenterprise development, discussed gender issues, and received training in a variety of skills. Topics included: gender equity, project management, accounting and finance, marketing, business plan development, and more.
Following the training, 14 women received funding for their business plans to either grow or launch their own small business!
In the coming months we’ll continue to provide similar training to women in more villages and fund additional business plans.
THANK YOU for your support of this vital work to create economic opportunities for impoverished Palestinian women!
