Job creation and development

Caritas handles several projects focusing on empowering vulnerable members of the Palestinian society including women and rural communities.

 

Job creation

 

Providing solid long term benefits to the community coupled with allowing unemployed workers to earn a living in dignity is the focus of our Job creation programme. This programme helps improving people’s lives through giving dignified work to the unemployed in the construction sector.

 

The house renovation projects help underpriviledged families by improving seriously degraded and insanitary residences. The programme operates in coordination with our Social Service department, whose expertise helps identifying beneficiaries.

 

Caritas also coordinated the construction of a sewage system in the West Bank town of Beit Sahour and of water cisterns in Aboud, providing jobs to skilled and low-skilled workers. Water shortages and pollution is an acute problem in Palestine. Caritas Jerusalem has worked in several villages isolated from water networks and suffering from water shortages

 

Women economic empowerment

 

Caritas is involved in a project training 400 women from the Bethlehem area in sewing techniques, embroidery and design for the production of a line of high quality baby clothes designed and made in Palestine for export to Europe.

 

The project is coordinated and implemented by Caritas Jerusalem in cooperation with local textile factory owners and with the contribution of the Spanish Foundation for Social and Cultural Development (FPSC) and the Community of Madrid.

 

Charity to development

 

This project aims at the economic empowerment of rural families in Zababdeh (Northern West Bank) through cash and loans for income generating projects. Small business initiatives include livestock and farming, clothes making, home painting shop and a coffee shop.
