This initiative is helping women in al-Darb al-Ahmar - one of Cairo's poorest districts - to earn a living, contribute to household expenses and gain some independence.
Marwa with her class; this initiative has supported hundreds of women to learn how to make jewellery and sell their work.
‘The Artisans of al-Darb al-Ahmar: Life and Work in Historic Cairo’ exhibition is taking place at the Royal Geographical Society, Exhibition Road, London, from 22 March to 24 April 2018.
This exhibition showcases the people and personalities that make up daily life in this unique district, home to over 1,000 artisan workshops and 60 monuments of Islamic architecture. It presents artisans at work, some of whom are part of a tradition going back a thousand years but whose skills may not last another generation. More information available here.
