See a nice little video of the kids at the mobile library on YouTube.In the 1980's, a group of Bedouin girls got together to improve life in their village. In 1996 the Association for the Improvement of Women's Status achieved official recognition as the first Bedouin women's non-profit organization in Southern Israel.Today we run a successful embroidery program to generate income for Bedouin women and preserve traditional handicrafts.We operate a mobile library serving over 1,500 children, as well as educational programs for women and youth.We invite you to visit the Desert Embroidery Visitor Center or browse the fine handmade embroidery products we offer.
The temporary exhibit of Bedouin crafts is at the Artist's House of the Negev.
The gallery is in an old house in the Old City of Beer Sheva.
