DOZNALI CHOIR

The Doznali Choir was initiated in 2014 to impart pride in Arabic culture. It particularly focuses on Middle Eastern music which has been significantly sidelined by contemporary pop music. Young Arab women and men aged 15-24 play a variety of instruments and are coached in vocal skills. At present, the group has seventeen young singers and musicians.

EMPOWERING ARAB WOMEN IN ISRAEL

We seek seed funding for trainings and courses to endow Arab women and girls with: • Skills to facilitate their employability, such as language acquisition and preparation for the labor market. • Information about higher education and study options, with a goal of increasing female Arab participation in the labor market. • Opportunities for community involvement – leadership training for young women, encouraging social entrepreneurship, and initiating community projects that sustain a sense of belonging and pride in Sakhnin and the Galilee.

THE SAKHNIN WOMEN’S CAFÉ (SWoC)

Open to locals and tourist groups, SWoC is a social business run by ASMF activists as a source of flexible employment and additional income. During evenings, small-scale events are held on the premises for Arab-Jewish dialogue, educational lectures, and to promote women’s artwork.
