Madina Association Artisan Story

MHC-artisans-1Madina Association is a non-political organization that helps vulnerable Afghan women become self-sustainable by promoting literacy, health education, life skills and basic business training. Madina offers nearly 200 women in Kabul City and the nearby villages of Waisalabad, Qarabagh, and Kumeeta-e Wardak the chance to improve their living conditions with free classes in tailoring, handicrafts and jewelry making. Once artisans are fully trained, they enjoy steady work embroidering scarves and shawls or creating exquisite jewelry using fluorite, lapis, carnelian, quarts, turquoise, and other locally-sourced semiprecious stones. Madina also trains teenage students in jewelry making and pays students a monthly stipend with meals for the days they come to learn.
