Women Community Centres in Gaza
Rose2Rose helped in the establishment of 2 women community centres at Rafah (2011) and Jabalia (2012) in cooperation with our partners – Darul Quran Wa as-Sunnah (DQWS) and Al-Rahma Society of Jabaliya City. Total cost for both centres was RM 600,000.
These centres aim to empower the Gazan women (particularly widows of the martyrs and their children) socially and economically by holding IT and vocational trainings and character building workshops.

Rohingya Women Centre, Malaysia
Since November 2014, Rose2Rose has been organizing a weekly sewing and craftwork workshops for Rohingya women community in Puchong to train and develop their capacity to generate their own income.
After 2 months of training, the Rohingya women are able to sew their own pillowcases, kitchen towels, panhandlers, aprons, and colorful bracelets. Participants have gained great confidence from the workshops and are now able to make use of the skills learnt to develop their own sewing and handicraft products.
