HANDCRAFTED IN ISRAEL
Sindyanna of Galilee is a nonprofit fair trade organization established in 1996 primarily to address issues related to the status of Arab women in their society. Led by women striving for social change, Sindyanna works with the Arab population in the Galilee region of northern Israel, as well as with olive growers and artisans. Sindyanna combines commercial activity with work in the community, thereby enhancing Arab women’s empowerment while developing the olive industry. The organization stresses values such as land preservation, environmental considerations and commerce using the principle of fair trade. Sindyanna symbolizes a unique cooperation between Arabs and Jews, striving to strengthen the economy of the Arab Palestinian population. Ten Thousand Villages began purchasing from Sindyanna in 2009.
