Women in Palestine need access to resources in face of economic, social, and political instability.
Women in the West Bank and Gaza are struggling to break free from economic and social instability. Many women find themselves struggling to take care of their families in light of their husbands deaths or inability to continue to work due to illnesses. 87% of women-headed families are not “economically active” and are identified as one of the most vulnerable groups.

IRUSA program aims to economically and socially empower women-headed households in the West Bank and Gaza to improve their family income.
These women will be given access to the skills and materials they need to start their own businesses. Women are provided empowerment and business training, COVID-19 safety education, social and mental health support, and skills training in their respective fields of interest. Through ongoing mentoring, participants have been building new businesses and/or furthering their success in ones they already have. Women supported through this program have received agricultural training as well as business training for independently-owned shops, catering businesses, restaurants, sewing businesses, hair salons, and photography businesses.
Here are just some of the outcomes we are working on:
Mentorship for women so that they can determine the best business direction for themselves
Training and resource provisions to help them start their entrepreneurial journeys
Ongoing counseling and support as they build their business to help them navigate as necessary
