Update

The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) trains widows and poor women to weave quality carpets at its center in Herat, Afghanistan. While they are weaving carpets in the center, they are paid a salary (actually more than the salary of a teacher) and the finished carpets are then sold by AIL to help defray the costs of the program. Although some of the women are competent enough to weave carpets on their own, many do not have space where they live to put up the large loom that the carpets are woven on. There are currently 10 women working on four carpets at the center. In 2006, two women saved enough to begin working on carpets in their homes.
