Razia Jan, the in-country director of Arzu Studio Hope, walks the grounds of the community garden the organization built in the Dragon Valley, 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 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.
