Achoti is Israel's lading Mizrahi feminist organization. Grounded in the principles of feminism of color, the organization believes that socioeconomic justice is a necessary foundation for the creation of a multi-cultural, egalitarian and just society.
Thanks to a grant from the Dafna Fund, Achoti has been able to develop an inspiring model for feminist economic development for women in disadvantaged communities and a platform for access to markets – through a chain of three fair trade shops.
Funding: The Dafna Fund supported Achoti for 7 years, with an average grant of $30,000 per annum. In 2013, we provided a one-time grant in the amount of $8,000 towards renovating Achoti's new feminist coffee shop.
