In May 2018, Carol Wills and Elizabeth Laskar went on the first ever Fair Trade tour of Palestine, organised by the Holyland Handicrafts Cooperative Society and the University of Bethlehem Fair Trade Resource Centre, and met Nawal Slemiah at the Women in Hebron Cooperative. They will speak about the journey they made. Nawal will talk about the work the cooperative does to empower Palestinian women and keep Palestinian culture and traditional handicrafts alive. There will be an opportunity to buy and order goods from Women of Hebron before and after the talk. OFTC will be covering some of Nawal’s costs for her visit to Oxford – please donate generously.
