Tailoring studio "Negina Tailor" in Arbab Kheel, province of Kapiza

In Nejrab (province of Kapiza, Afghanistan) we train women in the NAZO center to become tailors. After the training they build groups to proceed working together. In the village Arbab Kheel a group of 15 women has been formed. SAll of them are former students who learned the occupation of a tailor. They asked as to support the development of their tailoring workshop with connected shop in their village. 
With your financial support we were able to provide the money for the renovation and redesign of the rooms in Arbab Kheel.

Have a look at some photos of the opening on the 19th July 2017.

Report from Afghanistan 06.06.2017:

„Many thanks, we are physically intact, but our minds have suffered a great deal. Since the last attack in Wazir-Akbar-Khan / Kabul the security status here is worse than ever since the fall of the Taliban 15 years ago.  

5 days after a demonstration of people outside the presidential palace, all main roads in Kabul still remain closed. People, staff, and students cannot reach their workplace and are facing different problems.  

In these times your are the only ones who support us and give us strength. 

About Nejrab: At the moment Madina is in Nejrab und will stay there until the end of the week. Work at the center is making good progress. The first workshop (studio) has been established and the women and their former students - as always - are hardworking. Unfortunately the 2nd workshop (studio) with attached shop Negina Saloon at the bazar of the village Arbab Kheel is not yet active, because we still haven't got enough money for it." 


It took "only" 4 weeks - and we were able to transfer the money needed for the renovation and equipment in Arbab Kheel (4,500 €). Thank you very much for your support! 
Now only the money for the rent is missing: 100,00 € monthly. Donate here.
