Several cooperation projects have already tried to improve the economical situation of women living and working in Sejnene. Sejnene is known worldwide for its hand made pottery which is made by those same women. Projects have created strong inequality in the community as well as causing a tense atmosphere between women.Sejnene has become a symbol of confrontation between artistic expression and religion. During recent months these women have been intimidated by religious extremists who consider that art and women labor are controvertial.The establishment of a cooperative for women will strengthen the position of these fragile women. The project will aim at improving the quality of their work which in turn would strengthen their income and their role in the family. The project will also help to maintain the traditional art form.

Financement : Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland
Budget  : 908 USD
