CARE works toward hope, tolerance, and social justice, focused on overcoming poverty and enabling people to live in dignity and security. CARE’s Humanitarian Assistance for Widows of Afghanistan (HAWA) program is a manifestation of this vision, serving vulnerable women in Afghanistan by providing sustainable livelihood opportunities.
Business Council for Peace (Bpeace) offers Afghan female entrepreneurs business consulting, training, mentoring, networking opportunities, access to capital, and international markets for their goods and services.
Arzu — which means “hope” in Dari — helps provide sustainable income to Afghan widows by sourcing and selling their handmade carpets. Arzu’s goal is to create opportunities for economic self-reliance, education, and health care for Afghan women and their families through a sustainable carpet project that enjoys long-term access to US markets.
RAZIA'S RAY OF HOPE
Razia’s Ray of Hope, founded by humanitarian Razia Jan, provides exemplary, free education to more than 480 girls in grades K-12 at the Zabuli Education Center in Deh’Subz, Afghanistan.
