WHO WE ARE - SHOROUQ SOCIETY
The Shorouq Charitable Society for Women is a Palestinian non-profit organization that is committed to bringing Palestinian women into public sphere.
Open to all Palestinian women regardless of their religious or political beliefs, Shorouq helps women build a better future.
It does this through a range of activities designed to:
- Improve the status of women and allow them to play an active role in society
- Empower women to initiate positive change at home and within the broader Palestinian society
Specifically, Shorouq seeds and cultivates independent, women-owned micro-and small businesses, located in Al-Azaria, Palestine. The center conducts training courses, mentoring programs and on-the-job instruction for Palestinian women.
- Integrate women into the economy as a way to enhance their status and influence
The center is also a safe place for women to meet and engage in a range of general empowerment and enrichment programs in areas including education, health and culture, among others.
Shorouq is actively building partnership with ATS pro Terra Sancta and Mosaic Centre throughout Palestine and abroad, and is also working in conjunction with the Palestinian Authority's Ministry for women's affairs in Ramallah (Tawasol Center).
