    These children are in preschool while their mothers work for ARZU Studio Hope, a non-profit organization that provides a place for women to make carpets. The women get paid 50% 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 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 an organization that believes in a holistic approach to sustainable poverty alleviation achieved through artisan-based employment that empowers women. For more information, you can visit ARZU Studio Hope website at www.arzustudiohope.org. Also available in high definition
