BENEFITING: Arzu

THE STORY:

2014 marks ARZU's TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY of effective operations in Afghanistan. From March 2014 to December 2014 (10 months) we hope to raise $100,000 to support our efforts to empower Afghan women and their families to build a better future for themselves and their communities. 10 years x 10 Months= $100,000. Join our cause!

ARZU provides hundreds of Afghan women weavers the dignity of work and self-expression through their art. These Hazara refugees returned to Bamyan Province with lives as shattered as the Buddhas that had stood nearby for a thousand years.A woman’s paycheck feeds her kids; literacy feeds her mind; a home feeds her heart; self-worth feeds her soul.

ARZU needs you to help us change the equation in "the world's worst place to be a woman."   Feed your soul; generously donate now.

Here’s what your donation of any size can do:

$10 buys $5 shoes and a $5 winter coat for one child—think about kids walking to school in the Rockies wearing flip-flops and a shirt

$40 gives one hungry preschooler two meals a day for a month or feed the whole class this month for $1200

$100 heats a classroom for one month (wood = warmer students)

Heat ALL the classrooms for $1000 a month this winter

$200 teaches 500 illiterate women to read and write--that's a teacher's salary for a month.  For $2400, this teacher supports her own family for a year

$300 buys a loom for a widow to earn an income—it’s her biggest asset

$500 furnishes a three-room house including a stove and kitchen essentials

$8000 builds a Super Adobe home for a widow and her kids living in a cave

$10000 opens a computer center to connect teen girls to the outside world
