Artisan Links

Artisan Links - embroidery
Organisation Name: Artisan Links
Country:

Started as an income generating project set up 29 years ago to assist women in the hundreds of thousands of families which poured across the border from Afghanistan into Pakistan when fighting started. Today hundreds of poor Afghan women earn a steady income from embroidery and handicraft production. This income supports their children’s education, in particular taking their children away from carpet work and sending them to school.  Other women spend money on pregnancy check ups – often for the first time in their lives despite multiple pregnancies.  Women produce directly for Artisan Links. They are almost 100% illiterate and most have never visited a clinic or a doctor in their lives.  These women also lead lives of chronic poverty and isolation before finding this source of income
