Project: Vocational Training for Marginalized Arab Women, Residents of East Jerusalem
Founded: 2009 
Location: East Jerusalem 

Due to elevated Israeli harassment of the Arab residents of the city and circumstances beyond their control, the socio-economic conditions of Arab residents of East Jerusalem have been deteriorating while unemployment is on the rise. While it is becoming increasingly acceptable and feasible for women to work vocationally from home and sell their products to earn some income, not all women have the resources they need to do so.
