The story of the Iraq Al-Ameer Women’s Association began in 1996 when Her Majesty Queen Noor inaugurated the latest development projects in the Wadi Al Seer Villages. The center includes many wonderful manufacturing departments, such as the handmade paper composed of various plant fibers, natural colors for dying, and more. The paper products are completely environmentally friendly, and the textile and ceramics are entirely handmade, with each meeting the special requests of many customers. The Center has been supported by the Ministry of Planning, which has made the Center's work increasingly extensive. The women in the Center have transformed from shy village women to business women who have the ability to contribute financially to their homes, help their families and society, and manage their own projects – despite all the challenges and difficulties within their small community.
