The Haneen Project is a new initiative established as a result of Sunbula’s product development training which was held in early 2007, in Balata Refugee Camp near the city of Nablus. A group of women who received the training formed an independent income-generating project to support their families. Haneen means ‘longing’ in Arabic, and it symbolizes the refugees’ longing for their ancestral homeland and cultural heritage.

Balata Refugee Camp has 22,000 inhabitants and is the largest of the 19 in the West Bank. Condtions are very difficult with overcrowding, poverty and violence. Experimenting with ancient designs and techniques, Haneen is producing items not made in other groups. Because of their isolated position, Haneen is quite dependent on Sunbula; it is diffcult for others to buy directly and send the money back to them.
