The aim of the Women’s Economic Committee in Aleppo’s Sheikh Maqsud neighbourhood is to support women.

13 women work in one of their projects making hand crafted and embroidered products. The project aims to involve a large number of people, especially unemployed women. Workers were trained in hand embroidery and the use of various labels. The women work with love and ethics and then sell their products in the markets.

The primary goal of the project is for women to learn this job and support themselves financially.
