Bringing the jobs to Beduin women

The frustrating cycle that many graduates in the Beduin sector face is best summed up by Ella Eyal Bar David, an employment and infrastructure project manager at the Economy Ministry who works with Beduin clients.

“People who have graduated and don’t find work [find it] very frustrating, because they went and studied and invested thousands of shekels in those studies, and then after they finish their degree they go and work in a gas station or something, and not in their profession,” said Bar David, last week as she showed a group of visitors around the Rayan South employment center in Rahat, south of Beersheba.

Mahmud Alamour, the director of the center backed up Bar David’s statement, adding “We are living on the periphery with limited resources, especially public transportation, infrastructure and also job opportunities.”
