Arab Startup Competition 2018: Social Entrepreneurship Track - Finalist

Description

Khoyoot creates partnerships with women in refugee camps to produce hand embroidered products. Khoyoot seeks out women of the camps, providing them with embroidery courses so they can join forces to create different product lines. We help these women in marketing and branding different product lines to sell worldwide. We were able to reach 7 countries in less than a month. Along with financial benefits come a sense of contribution for women and a spark of hope. Part of revenues are used to fund more courses and initiatives within the camps. Khoyoot connected the heart of the camp with the rest of the world in an attempt to increase equality and raise awareness.
