Connie Duckworth, Arzu Studio Hope founder and president, wrapped up her six-day tour of Afghanistan, June 12, in Bamyan, where her efforts to create a better quality of life and foster a sense of economic and social independence for Afghan women began.
Duckworth invested her time, effort and heart into the central Afghan province, nearly destroyed by Taliban a decade ago, and established Arzu, meaning hope in Dari, a nonprofit organization that provides sustainable income to Afghan women by sourcing and selling the rugs they weave. Produced by Sgt. Heidi Agostini. Also available in high definition.
