Join HANDS at our annual holiday craft sale! This is a wonderful opportunity to do some holiday shopping while supporting a great cause: employment for women in Cairo’s garbage collector community.

All products are made by artisans at the Association for the Protection of the Environment (APE), which provides job-skills training and education to young women in the garbage collecting community of Cairo. Each item is made from clean, recycled materials and the artisans are fairly paid for each craft they produce.

The event will take place at the Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center, 2425 Virginia Ave NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20037.

Other organizations will also be selling handicrafts, and Middle Eastern food will be served. We hope to see you there!
