The center has started this handcraft activity to give women the chance to try to work on new materials and generate an income to support their families. Hawkari Center is run by Emma Organization for Human Development.
The center was handed over by the Ministry of Education in 2015 to Emma Organization as it was suffering from a lack of educational and cultural services among women and young girls in the area. However, Emma Organization has now transformed the center into a safe place and a place where women learn new skills and further their skills into
The center also delivers free courses in literacy, sewing, social activities and awareness sessions on different subjects. The beneficiaries are all women of the surrounding areas including IDPs and refugee women who are currently residing there.
