The Saudi Committee for the Relief of the Palestinian People today signed an agreement with the United Nations Program for Human Settlements (UN Habitat) to fund a training center for Palestinian women in the West Bank.
The $1.6 million project will provide technical and vocational training to impoverished women and those with special needs in Al-Khalil (Hebron). It will be implemented in coordination with Habitat and Palestinian authorities.
Last year, Saudi Arabia funded the construction of 100 housing units for widows and divorcees in Al-Khalil. The units were also constructed in cooperation with Habitat.
