Today at the Al Shmoh Cultural Center took place the graduation ceremony for the Women Cooperative of al Ma’sara. After an intensive needlework course, organized by the Bethlehem Fair Trade Artisans organization, the women have been awarded with a vocational diploma.

This is one of the first courses that will take place in the Al Shmoh Center, one small step on the path to make it become a place of cultural gathering for the people of al Ma’sara and of the surrounding villages.
