Celebrating the New Year in Our New Home
In July, we moved to our new office, in a beautiful stone building on 119 Jaffa Rd., several blocks away from our old office. The office was renovated to fit our needs and we continue our work inspired and motivated by our new surroundings. On Sep. 18th we will celebrate the new year in our new office with our staff, board and facilitators.
A New Website is Born
We will soon launch a website for women owned businesses throughout the country called "Yozmot". This is part of a social-economic initiative by "Shutafot" women's organization coalition, of which EEW is a member, and that is being funded by the EU. The purpose of the initiative is to create a community of business women, to encourage purchasing services and goods from these businesses, to develop them and discourage discrimination against them.

This is a quote from a participant of our July 31st site visit of three "A business of one's own" groups, supported by Bank Hapoalim, from Nazareth, Bak'a El Garbiya and Sachnin. The women visited several successful businesses owned by EEW graduates. They visited a catering business, a restaurant, a clothing store and a children's playhouse and were inspired by the success of each business owner.
