Palcrafts aims to relieve poverty for Palestinians by providing a sustainable source of income for artisans and farmers and is mainly done through the trading arm Hadeel. Secondly it aims to raise awareness in the UK of Palestinian issues. Thirdly it gives grants to producer groups. This has included recent grants to update computer equipment and machinery to improve productivity and improve Health & Safety. It also gives advice and assistance on further product development.
Donations and profits from Hadeel, in the shape of grants to help buy raw material and equipment needed for their craft, go directly to the Palestinian producer families who handcraft all our products. Hundreds of Palestinian families benefit from our initiative.
