Nowzad has an amazing and unique initiative that we are so excited to share with you all! We are giving the amazing Nowzad Family the chance to not only help the animals of Afghanistan, but the people too…
In many Traditional Families in Afghanistan it is still unacceptable for women to work. So often, when a man dies, is incapacitated, or is unable to work for any reason, the women are forced on to the streets to beg.
Kabul roadsides are scattered with these desperate women with no other choice but to plead for money from kind-hearted strangers to enable them to feed their family.
Nowzad is working to change that.
We have started an incredible new scheme called ‘Afghan Women Artisans For Animals’, that is at present employing up to 5 women in a safe and enjoyable environment, to produce beautiful and bespoke handicrafts for you to buy.
The women we employ receive a fair wage and any profit made on these products go towards the Nowzad shelter and Clinic in Afghanistan.
This scheme is just starting out, but is growing fast! So keep an eye out on the Nowzad shop for more lovingly hand crafted products coming soon!
Each design we sell is unique to its lucky recipient and helps an Afghan women support her family.
So, buy one today from the Nowzad shop and help us Save Animals AND Empower Women!
