al-'Eisawiyah Women's Centre
Dema Hamdan – Manager of Centre

al-‘Eisawiyah Women's Centre was established in 2011 in order to empower the women of al-‘Eisawiyah to face the difficult conditions under which the Jerusalemite community lives. The difficult economic conditions and increase of unemployment received a great portion of the Centre’s concerns. Therefore, the Centre concentrates on building the capacities of women to empower them economically and contribute to raise their standard of living. In addition to this, the Centre holds educational meetings to increase the awareness of women of their potential and rights and help them solve their problems.

Professionalism, capacity building in cultural, economic and legal fields.

The women of al-‘Eisawiyah are more educated and aware of their rights and capacities. They are economically self-sufficient.

The Centre holds workshops and lectures for women on various subjects aiming to raise their awareness and reinforce their role in society. The Centre also provides projects and programmes of vocational and social rehabilitation aiming to develop the contribution of women to cultural, social and vocational fields.
