Beit Doqu Development Society is a nonprofit established in 1988 by a group of active young people in the village of Beit Doqu, near Jerusalem. Programs include cultural, social, agricultural, and health services to the community as well as income-generation activities for women. Recently, the expansion of Israeli settlements, road network and the Separation Wall have completely encircled the village, resulting in the loss of a large area of agricultural land, a vital source of livelihood.
Sunbula began the jewelry-making project for women who sought economic opportunity by setting up workshops to teach beading techniques and basic metal work, including cutting, sawing, melding, and polishing, and helped the women create jewelry for sale. The Beit Doqu jewelry collection includes delicately hand-crafted necklaces, earrings, and bracelets from brass, silver, and semiprecious stones, using Islamic styles and Arabesque designs.
