Women reimagine their footprint in Ein Qiniya

Jerusalem24 – Takhayali (Imagine) is a project reimagining Ein Qiniya through the eyes of its own women. The project offers a space for women to reflect on their visions of how they see the future master plan of their village, (located in a vital area with a rich ecological diversity) sitting at the edge of the rapidly-expanding city of Ramallah. The village is also a point of contact with settlers who periodically raid it.

Project Manager Natasha Aruri tells Jerusalem24 that Takhayali is a part of a much bigger project – GenUrb – that looks at the feminization of urban poverty.

“We know that poverty is on the rise, but how come women are more affected in urban areas of poverty than men?” asks Aruri.

Aruri explains that GenUrb is a comparative project that brings together a large number of cities from the global south. “Ramallah is one of the smaller ones.”

In Ramallah, the project focuses on the relationship between physical spaces and the types of infrastructure that cause marginalization.
