The Palestine History Tapestry…

This is a not for profit project in support of Palestinian women: Women who live an oppressed existence, who are poor, whose land has been taken from them; many whose families have lived for over half a century  in refugee camps throughout the Middle East; women who like any wife or mother desperately want to take care of their families but face a daily struggle for survival.

The History Tapestry Project will empower Palestinian women, enabling them to engage in income generating activity whilst telling the story of the villages and towns, the life and heritage of their ancestors and forebears, the indigenous people of Palestine, through beautiful skilled embroidery, and the Palestinian History Tapestry Project.

We have had this very creative image drawn by Amjad Ghannam an artist from East Jerusalem for a while, and have been searching for the right group to stitch it. We are pleased to say that  The Amari Women’s Program Center in Ramallah are about to embark on its production.

 Thank you Ladies we look forward to reports of work in progress.
