A little girl listens to her teacher during a class at the Arzu Studio Hope compound in the Dragon Valley west of the town of Bamyan. Women and children enrolled in the program are taught the skills to weave rugs, and are required to attend literacy classes. The women 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. Older children attend classes before and after learning the skills to weave.
