A member in the spotlight: Jerusalem Center for Women

We are happy to share an interview with Fadwa Khawaja, Director of the association Jerusalem Center for Women (JWC) which is a member of the Foundation's Association's Network since May 2015.

JWC was established in 1994, as a Palestinian non-governmental organization which is located in the East Jerusalem. Its main goals are women empowerment in community and political activism; protection and advancement of Palestinian women's rights and status; women's involvement in realizing a regional peace based on justice and collaborating with local and international partners to empower women.

JWC is committed to advancing the rights of women and developing their role in the civil society by building a decision-making process, while working to end oppression, poverty and human rights violations for all members of the society.

The Foundation hosted a capacity-building workshop that was financed by the European Union, in April 2016 in Barcelona and addressed to 36 representatives of civil society organizations working for gender equality. We took the opportunity to talk with Fadwa Khawaja, Director of JWC, who describes their engagement to Palestinian women and the advantages to be a member of the Foundation’s Association’s Network.
