Arous Elbahar (Bride of the Sea)

Arous Elbahar (Bride of the Sea) for Women in Jaffa is a nonprofit that seeks to empower Jaffa’s Arab women economically and socially, increase their participation in the workforce and community, and advocate on behalf of their rights. The organization, set within the community, serves as a supportive and empowering space for women, enabling them to attain their goals through community projects that suit the needs of Arab women living in a mixed city. The Achoti Fair Trade Shop carries dolls that are hand made by the women of Arous Elbahar as part of their Creative Communities Project.
