Razia Jan (left), the in-country director of Arzu Studio Hope, a non-governmental organization based out of Chicago, sits in on a first grade class for women at their school, located in a fortified compound west of the town of Bamyan. Women and children enrolled in the program receive higher-than average compensation for their work as carpet weavers and they, their children, and any female in their household are required to attend literacy classes. They also have access to day care for their children, hot water to wash clothes, a kitchen, and a garden where they can grow their own vegetables and herbs.
