The Community Action Center- Al-Quds University established The Women’s Empowerment Center (WEC) in 2009 with funding from the Development Fund of Palestinian Municipalities and Italian provinces: Naples, Rome and Milan.

Since the beginning of the year 2009 the WEC has provided a variety of services to women and young ladies in the old city, including film screenings, public lectures, tours, outreach and education in small groups, exercises that target the development of life skills and professional and community participants at the center. WEC believes that the empowerment of women is not limited to the provision of opportunities, but expands to include how to use opportunities available according to the needs and realities of each woman involved in the center's activities. Based on this, the WEC works with women and young ladies from surrounding communities on empowerment through education, entertainment, awareness raising as well as physiological-social support.
