This week’s Featured Peacebuilding Group is the Lebanon- based National Association for Vocational Training and Social Services (NAVTSS). One of my former students Heather Payne is working for the group in Beirut. Here is a video about the project she is working on which supports Palestinian women in developing businesses creating and selling tatreez.
