Day 7 Blog post 1. The Rural Women Bazaar

Some of us who have been fortunate to be part of the team for several seasons always make a point of visiting this shop during our stay. Located just near the entrance to Petra, and much larger than it looks from the entrance, this store sells handicrafts, souvenirs, and traditional products and uses it proceeds to help better the plight of local Jordanian women.

This organization aims to help rural women improve their living standards and enhance their roles in the developmental process; they provide both financial and non-financial support for these women including training and marketing support for their business.
