As for the problems that are facing the bakery , she said that the oppressive Israeli siege and the crossings closure are the main obstacles, pointing that “ the siege is restricting our capabilities to obtain the suitable raw material that are necessary for our products”.
Muna also explained that recruiting women is one of the main strategies of the Female Muslim Youth association, while trying to empower them and integrate them in small projects.
She went on saying that “ under the prevailing difficult economic situation , we found that thinking of such small projects and implementing them would contribute in improving the economic situation , alleviate the unemployment rates, and decrease poverty figures”.
From her part, Om Haitham, the bakery’s director said that “ the main objective behind the idea of this project was to recruit unemployed women and help them to become self dependant.
She added that “ in order to realize the economic progression, we need a safe political situation and stability “ hoping that this will happen in the near future on all levels.
She concluded by saying that the association is organizing periodical training courses on the art of making pastries and desserts that attract a big number of women and young ladies, hoping to develop the project to match highest degree of levels.
