Challenge

Women in Palestine have made progress gaining more equal access to education, but have not yet gained equal access to work outside the home. Many women possess education, motivation and basic skills, but lack the support, tools and training (that's easily accessible to men) to make their equal participation in the workforce possible.

Solution

We are increasing women's participation in the labor force and promoting economic empowerment by offering individualized training and mentoring to increase participants' business and practical skills, as well as self-confidence. TYO's approach adapts participant's traditional skills, such as making olive oil, pickling, and soap-making, to design business plans that reflect international expertise and market research to ensure their competitiveness in the marketplace.

Long-Term Impact

Over the life of the project, 60 women - 20 business leaders and approximately 40 craftswomen and working women with talent, economic need, and the qualifications necessary to staff the businesses - will be engaged directly and 500 family members will be reached indirectly.
