The weaver of Gemstones

"I cannot stand discrimination. Often I have come across incidences when boys are enrolled in English medium schools and girls are put in Govt. schools thinking a girl’s education is less important. I strongly believe that such practices should be stopped. My son and my daughter both now go to English medium schools.

 

I learned English while working here and now I’m capable enough of helping out my children with their school homework. That makes me feel good about myself!"

Abira means strong women in Hebrew. An Abira is a warrior who paves the path to growth for herself, her family and the community.

Our journey of empowering marginalised women started in 2015 with a group of 8 women. We are a family of 190 Abiras now who have worked with us in past 5 years. Profits from our sales are invested towards trainings of our artisans.
