JARAKI SEWING PROJECT
Our biggest long-term project is the Jaraki Sewing Project.
We teach refugee women to make purses, tablet cases, messenger bags, etc. from old Turkish rugs.
The project has been growing quickly and new women are signing up to join.
We compensate the women for the products they make and we have begun to sell them around the world.
This project has since grown into a full-scale business and we are excited to see it continue to impact the lives of the women we employ.
