The Dom Research Center and the Domari Society have launched an official partnership through which the DRC will
assist the Domari Society by hosting an online store through which the handicrafts and jewelry produced by the Dom
women will be sold.Production and sell of these items has become an important income source for several Dom families in East Jerusalem
and the Palestinian West Bank. By establishing an online outlet Amoun Sleem, the director of the Domari Society,
hopes to broaden the market and strengthen the program.
Through the partnership the DRC will assist with the publication and marketing of a book about the life of Ms Sleem.
The book is in the final writing stages and will go to the publisher in the near future.
Establishment of a Gypsy Clothing Market is another goal of this partnership. The Domari Society will operate this
market to raise funds for the budget of its Community Center.
Online sells and the community operated Clothing Market projects are being developed with the goal of establishing
sustainable, self-directed programs in the Domari community.
