Wednesday 21st October, 7-8.30pm, Bangledesh Centre, Roundhay Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS8 5AN
Women in Hebron was established as part of the cooperative association’s efforts to provide women in Hebron district the resources to provide for themselves and their families through the production and sales of Palestinian handicraft items. Our work began in 2005, when our founder and director, Nawal Slemiah, began selling items in the Old City souq (market) of Hebron in the occupied H2 sector, a short distance from the Ibrahimi Mosque. Since 2005, Women in Hebron has grown from a small table along the main thoroughfare of the market to a permanent fixture in the Old City.
Nawal will talk about life in Hebron under occupation and the work of the cooperative.
