The Palestinian Businesswomen’s Association – Asala is a registered non-profit organization working in Palestine to support female micro-entrepreneurs.  Asala continues to provide comprehensive and needs-based services to marginalized women in the West Bank and Gaza Strip along three strategic tracks: advocacy and lobbying for women’s economic and social rights; capacity building and facilitating access to local and global market for women enterprises.

Palestinian Businesswomen’s Association (Asala) is partnering with CowaterSogema International Inc. (lead), and the Near East Foundation (NEF) Palestine, to implement a 4-year project Generating Revenue Opportunities for Women and Youth in the West Bank (GROW), which is funded by the Government of Canada.

The goal of the GROW project is to enhance economic empowerment and increase prosperity for low-income women and youth, particularly female youth, in the West Bank. The project will seek to achieve this by adopting a gender transformative approach aimed at recognizing, formalizing, and amplifying women’s existing roles in key value chains whilst promoting women’s increased decision-making and control over income, assets, and productive resources. This project will focus specifically on value chains, where significant potential exists to empower women, including female youth, to move beyond their essential but largely unrecognized roles, ultimately contributing to their increased agency in both economic and social spheres.

To date, Asala has benefited more than 8000 women through its capacity building services and tens of thousands of women through its advocacy and lobbying efforts, thereby enabling them to create better lives for themselves and their families as well as advancing progressive social change which recognizes women’s economic and social rights in their communities.
