Our first stop today was to the Bedouin town of Lakiyah, to visit our grantee Sidreh.  Sidreh is using a Foundation grant to support financial literacy and business development classes for local women.   Hear from one of their leaders, above.

For many of us, a highlight of the visit was “meeting” via Skype, a group of Bedouin women taking a financial literacy class. We were sitting in a tent in Lakiya, and they were in a nearby town that had no power–their computer and wireless connection came via a generator.
