Empower the Women of Gaza

On the occasion of the Seattle Marathon 2012 which will take place on November 25th, VPM will pledge USD 20,000 to fund more micro-financing projects for women. And Ramzy Baroud, a renowned Palestinian- American journalist, author, editor and former Al-Jazeera producer has offered to undertake the most difficult part of the fund raiser; the running!

The empowerment and employment of women has been a priority since our visits to Gaza in October 2010, August 2011 and more recently in June 2012. A total of USD 70,000 has so far been disbursed to our partner, the Family & Society Development Association in Gaza. This has helped to create jobs for women – many of them widowed and breadwinners – in such cottage industries as sewing & embroidery, beauty & hairdressing and bakery.
