The Bethlehem Bakery

It was good to hear from our good friend Rami Khader with news of a new project that he is helping get off the ground in Bethlehem. Rami has had discussions with Palestinian women who aim to set up a cooperative bakery in Bethlehem, which employs vulnerable women from across the West Bank.

Rami said, “I am working as an individual with 7 women who have been abused and we came up with an idea, after many discussions, that we want to start a cooperative (The bakery) and also train women in remote areas who are going through a hard time to become bakers, including bread and pastries and to open micro initiatives from home using technology to sell their products.”

We also welcome the opportunity to contribute to the initiative through the ‘Go Fund Me’ page that they have set up.
