Sahar Al Khatib, 21 Salt

Our Country's Mushrooms

Sahar seeks to provide employment opportunities to housewives, widows, disabled, and divorced women through Our Country's Mushrooms, an initiative that makes mushroom soup. Her organization collects mushrooms that are then dried and made into a powder that makes hearty and all-natural mushroom soup. The initiative provides the opportunity for housewives and partially disabled persons to earn an income. Sahar would like to increase the number of beneficiaries in Salt and then expand to all of Jordan's governorates, especially those that receive little support from the government. She also wants to begin using other foods to create healthy, all-natural products.
