Two Neighbors is a social business collaboration between women from Israel and Palestine. Meet Miriam – fashion designer from Tel Aviv – and Aysha* – one of the women doing embroidery work in Palestine:

“At 26, I am one of the few unmarried women in my village, and I’m very happy about it. I live with my parents, helping them with housework and looking after three younger sisters, but I’m in no hurry to have my own children. This gives me free time to spend with friends, as well as an opportunity to study and work, which are likely to be lost if I start my own family.

“I love children though, and if I ever get an opportunity to go to college, I would like to become a PE teacher. Every summer, my friends and I organise a summer camp for children from local villages. We get more than a hundred kids of all ages practicing Math, Arabic, English and Sports. I truly enjoy spending time with children, guess I have a youthful soul.”
