Sidreh - Lakiya Negev Weaving

Economic Development

Sidreh considers Economic Empowerment as a key element to significantly improve the situation of Bedouin women. As such, Sidreh promotes employment and small business development initiatives in the region. These include technical training, small business
exhibits, and joint tourism efforts to attract more visitors to the area. In addition, Sidreh was the first organization of its kind to promote a sustainable income generating project by transforming women’s traditional weaving skills into a professional manufacturing business that empowers women both socially and economically. The Lakiya Negev Weaving project enables over 70 women to participate in the production of rugs, bags and pillow cases; from spinning, dyeing, twining, weaving and quality control, as a unique process that is hardly seen in the world.
