Led by women striving for a social change, Sindyanna of Galille operates in the Arab population in the Galilee region, northern Israel, and seeks to help growers and producers from the Palestinian Occupied Territories. Furthermore, Sindyanna combines commercial activity with work in the community, thereby enhancing Arab women’s empowerment while developing the olive industry. Its focal points stress values such as land preservation, environmental considerations, and commerce on the principle of fair trade. Established in 1996, Sindyanna is a registered non-profit organisation.
Sindyanna symbolizes a unique cooperation between Arabs and Jews, striving to strengthen the economy of the Arab-Palestinian population, both in Israel and in the Occupied Territories. Sindyanna is not only a means of helping farmers and growers from the South, but also a way of showing that a solution to the Middle East conflict starts at opening real economic opportunities.
Sindyanna is also supporting farmers to earn organic certification for olive orchards.
