Since launching of Palestyle in 2009, we have been able to help 100 women with embroidery related jobs. This has translated into a source of: achievement, income, humble saving plan for these women and inspiration to their daughters to learn embroidery as well. Embroidery is fading out because of a decrease in demand and because the younger generation has lost interest learning it, in Palestyle we try to revive both.

Water Tank Exchange Program, Baqaa Refugee Camp, Jordan: It provided clean and potable water supply for 4000+ refugees. We replaced the existing contaminated water tanks with new ones.Read more > We also focused on increasing water supply to large households which had minimal supply. In addition, Three schools obtained new water piping via this program. This has translated to: Reducing 200hours/month for those families spent in fetching clean water (after supply runs out) this is equivalent to AED15,000/month of buying clean water to meet their shortage supply. Schools who had their new piping systems installed saved 600hours/month of study time wasted by students leaving the school to use washrooms outside the school since the school’s washrooms had no water.
