Bait al Karama means “house of dignity”, this simple words we keep them as a Mantra for us and for any decision we are undertaking.
At the heart of the project, two main goals:
* to support the social and economic needs of women of the Old City of Nablus struggling in the aftermath of the occupation by means of a food-based social enterprise
* to draw international attention to the Old City of Nablus as a place of Art and Culture, by initiating a number of cultural and artistic initiatives involving the local and wider Palestinian cultural scene as well as international guests and to encourage sustainable tourism.
Bait al KARAMA Women Centre is located in a recently renovated building in the very heart of the Old City of Nablus. Bait al Karama, run and managed by disadvantaged women living in the Old City of Nablus, will feature, among other relevant social and educational activities, the first female-run Cookery School in Palestine. Through income generating activities Bait al Karama aims to achieve long-term financial sustainability, and to accomplish its social-cultural mission, whilst offering the women of the Old City employment and the chance to develop income and self-sustainability.
Bait al KARAMA is the first Slow Food Convivium in Nablus.
