Palm Papers

Since 1990, parts of the palm tree have been used in an

innovative way - to make paper out of the pulp of its leaves.

The Bahrain Child and Mother Welfare Society adopted this

project in January 1990 as a pioneer project of the Society

under the supervision of the Ministry of Development and

Industry at that time. Thereafter the entire project came

under the supervision and management of the Society

alone. The palm leaf paper is made by Bahraini girls adding

considerable value and social esteem.

The basic purpose of this project is social

development, through training girls who cannot pursue

education. They gain the skills required for this kind of job

and take advantage of the easy availability of palm leaves

all over Bahrain.
