The Idna Cooperative Association for Embroidery and Handicrafts also known as Women in Hebron, is pleased to announce the start of an exciting new project aimed at developing sustainable ties with the emerging Polish market for international fair-trade goods and handicraft products for Palestine.
In the early summer of 2014, our Cooperative was awarded a substantial grant is made possible by the people of Poland through their Representative Office to Palestine in Ramallah. The grant will focus on training, product development and much-needed upgrades at the office of our Cooperative center to meet the needs of our expanding operation.
Women in Hebron is also pleased to announce a new partnership with the Aleph Foundation of Warsaw, which since 2013 has recruited skilled Polish volunteers to work with our Cooperative in Hebron district, and has also organized our participation in the Jagellonian Fair in Lublin, Warsaw this August 15th-17th along with an extended speaking tour.
Our Cooperative is pleased to forge ties with the people of Poland, who have shared with Palestinians a love and cultivation of their folk-art and handicraft heritage as part of their national identity through centuries of seeking national self-determination.
For more information on volunteering, distributing products and our participation in the Jagellonian Fair in Lublin this August, contact the Aleph Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
