Empowering Women in Jordan
Our project started in 1997, with the aim of giving back to society by educating and training women in the basic skills of jewellery making, ultimately giving them gainful employment. Over the years, these artisans, now over 25 strong, have refined their skills to the highest standard while working from home and at their own pace.
Beyond crafting jewellery, they also create the beautiful pouches that accompany the pieces. They now oversee their production at our workshop in Amman, Jordan. During the COVID lockdown, we ventured into embroidery, with our artisans now creating scarves from cotton, linen, and raw silk. This initiative has extended its impact to an additional 40 women in Amman and its vicinity, all working from home.
