Summary

You can help the women from Karama's Community Bakery to kick off strong and gain enough guidance, tools, and visibility to succeed. This project will support a newly established community bakery in a Palestinian refugee camp, where poor women get a chance to contribute to their community's health and earn a fair income.

Challenge

Palestinians are eager to create jobs and sustainable income for themselves, but with a broken economy and disadvantaged position, this is especially hard for refugees and even more; our women. One in three of the refugees is unemployed and a huge part of the women look for safe employment opportunities to contribute to their family's prosperity. Karama is also highly concerned about the dominant food patterns among our children, where snacks high in sugar and unhealthy additives are the norm.

Solution

Karama will not only create job opportunities for the neediest women in the refugee camp but also spread more awareness on a healthy diet and active lifestyle. "Bisan stayed home after completing her high-school as her family couldn't afford her education. While she has many interests, she never managed to make it into paid employment. As now she sees her own family struggling every month, she grasps the opportunity to work and contribute to both her family & community with both hands!"

Long-Term Impact

The bakery will evolve into a sustainable, income-generating business with at least 6 full-time salaries, but needs some extra start-up help in the first two to three years. It will establish relations with local schools and centers to deliver our products. We connect with Karama's Rooftop Greenhouse project for fresh produce and contribute to a movement of healthy, organic production amidst the misery of the refugee camp.
