On May 2016, the Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization launched its new initiative – “Traditional carpet/rug weaving classes for women”. The initiative’s main goal is to help Syrian women develop their business skills, and improve their participation in the economy, as well as their social conditions.
The project was funded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH within the framework of the “EU Targeted Initiative for Armenia” program.
Within the frames of the project, 28 women will acquire carpet/rug weaving skills. They will learn the distinctive features of the Armenian carpet weaving art, and will also develop their own creative abilities.
