A project in Bethlehem and Ramallah to support women in empowering other women

"Towards women who make change in priority communities and make a difference in their lives and the lives of other men and women" is the name of the project, which is being implemented by ADWAR (Roles for Social Change Association) in order to develop Bedouin women’s knowledge in accountability mechanisms, empower them and establish women’s protection committees to create community initiatives improving and ensuring the provision of public and local gender-sensitive services.

The project also aims to develop networking and accountability relationships between Bedouin women, government, non-governmental and private sector institutions, and to make sure that services and projects meet women’s needs.

The project is currently in its fifth phase, as ADWAR is forming women’s protection committees in six communities (Al Rawayeen, Rashaida, Jib al-Dhib, Baawi Al-Taiba, Jaba and Al-Ma’azi) to undertake the following community initiatives:

  • (Together to improve the agricultural situation) in Rashaida
  • (we have the right to see light ... we want solar panels) in Al Rawayeen
  • (We want means of transportation so we can feel safe) in Jib al-Dhib
  • (We want milk processors to relieve us from hardship) in Al-Taiba
  • (We want services to make our lives easier( in Al-Ma’azi
  • (We want a roof to put on our houses ... to protect us from this weather) in Jaba

This activity is carried out in cooperation with local councils in the Bethlehem and Ramallah governorates and funded by the Dutch government.
