Sewing Machines for Afghan Women
Afghanistan is one of the countries in the world where it is difficult for women to live. The political instability affects the women’s health education, safety, security, employment, and political empowerment. One Earth partnered with a local non-profit in 2018 to provide employment opportunity for 114 women in Afghanistan. The non-profit organizations provided 33 sewing machines and the large office space for these women to work and sew different garments. Now, these women are selling the garments and now have an income to buy basic needs for their families.
