Tailoring: A Small-Business Skill for Afghan Women

by Afghan Institute of Learning
Dec 22, 2011

A Great Year for 1719 Afghan Women

During 2011, 1719 women were instructed in sewing through the learning centers of the Afghan Institute of Learning.  That means that 1719 women are better equipped to become independent and/or financially assist their families.  Many of these women open their own businesses, while others sew from their homes and provide clothing for their own families and members of their community for a small fee.  Still others go to work for large businesses that require their skill level.

Thank you to all of you who provided support for these women.
