    These are preschool children of women employed by ARZU Studio Hope, a non-profit organization which provides a place for women to make carpets. The women get paid 50% of the carpets value, in addition to their labor. The women who participate in this program and their child are required to attend school; they provide classes up to 4th grade. Women who work in this compound also get the opportunity to socialize with each other, maintain a small garden and keep their 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 the ARZU Studio Hope website at www.arzustudiohope.org Produced by Sgt. Rachel Badgeley, Bamyan Province, Afghanistan. Also available in High Definition.
