The project aims to support women and families in Al Taybeh by increasing their economic role. Women will be provided with industrial equipment to support them in the making of their homemade products, with a focus on zaatar, sumac and sesame. The proposed project aims to maintain the traditions of making homemade products, and develop these techniques, preventing their extinction as well as encouraging the citizens of Taybeh to stay in their lands and contribute to the development of rural area’s economy. Al Taybeh’s economy mainly relies on agriculture (lentils, olives, wheat, grains and fruits). The machines will be used throughout the year, around 3 – 5 days per week, for 4 hours per day.
