With unemployment for women in Jordan nearly 33% in urban areas and higher in rural areas, the Iraq Al-Amir Women’s Cooperative has made a difference helping women become financially independent and improve their standard of living in addition to preserving their local heritage and crafts.

The cooperative has provided training for more than 150 women from all villages of Wadi Seer on a variety of handicrafts, and has created a number of job opportunities. The cooperative is managed by women as well.
This experience can be arranged as part of a custom trip in Jordan designed by TravelStore. Experiences are valid when posted and are subject to change and availability. Some of the special experiences cannot be booked on their own and are only available when booked in combination with other travel services.
