Razia Jan is the Program Director for ARZU Studio Hope, a non-profit organization that provides a place for women to make carpets. She discusses the benefits of this program where women get paid 50 percent of the carpets value, in addition to the cost of their labor. The women who work in this program and their children are required to attend school; they also provide classes up to 4th grade. Working in this compound also gives women the opportunity to socialize with each other, maintain a small garden and keep their younger children in preschool. ARZU, which means "hope" in Dari, is a n organization that believes in a holistic approach to sustainable poverty alleviation achieved through artisan-based employment that empowers women.
