"Empowering women by teaching them art&craft carpentry skills"
I believe that if you teach a woman you have taught a nation .My mind never seemed to stop, as Egyptian business woman for more then 22 years and also as a mentor, I realized it wasn't all just about the achievement of my personal dreams,it was also playing an important role in teaching new skills to empower others in my society.So ,In 2008, I started to think about taking on a role as a mentor to empower other women and to teach them new ' skills ', so I submitted a training program for women to teach sewing art & craft carpentry .
Empowering women by teaching them carpentry skills is the best way of fighting against gender inequality and women's dependency . I think this training will give another chance to women who did not have a chance to go to school and will make their future brighter. They will be able to have a say and an impact in their society . I think this will be a proof that Middle Eastern women can do what men can do if given support .
