Naturally, we are also very happy with a contribution to this thinks.
Before you will buy the roofgarden or some seeds, it maybe important to know more about the roofgardens and our organization Karama. Karama organisation, a NGO in Bethlehem led by local community leaders who have been working since 2002 to improve the living conditions of Palestinian refugee women and children. With minimal funding from outside, Karama has always been able to make a difference in the lives of the local community. The impact of our work however did not go unnoticed and at the end of 2016 Karama was accepted to enter a partnership with the European Commission to greatly increase the reach and impact of one of our projects.
Our organization has been involved in a rooftop garden project since 2012, where simple gardens with tubes and a water system allow women to produce fresh vegetables and herbs on their roofs in densely populated camps. This directly increases their household food security but also has an important impact on their wellbeing, as they increase their skills by following training and participating in production groups. The new project will actively engage almost 250 refugees in Bethlehem and Hebron region and use social entrepreneurship to bring households out of food insecurity and build new opportunities out of the cycle of dependency.
