Women's house and orphanage Kabul
The women's house and orphanage in Kabul was opened in 2003 and offers single women and children a new home. Children and adolescents get an education and women have the opportunity to work as tailors.
After the wars in Afghanistan, especially women live in extreme poverty and are not aware of their rights after years of oppression.
Due to this fact and the lack of resources it is not possible to develop opportunities without external help. This project gives them a chance of own income and living space. This strengthens the role of women through economic independence, enabling them to a simultaneous training in general and in the textile industry in particular, offering them an active participation in social reforms and the reconstruction of their country.
The women organize everyday life and work as a community in which all tasks are done in rotation. That way the women get the opportunity to experience in different areas to gather experience and become aware of their capabilities. The organizational structure consists of a director and an assistant, both permanent staff and skilled in foreign languages, and five subdivisions. The divisions are: education, sewing, nutrition, hygiene and supply. All subdivisions are to be controlled by three women. Every woman has responsibilities for a certain period of time.
In addition to the above tasks, the women work 6 hours a day in the tailoring. The woman responsible for directing will sale the Sewing on the local market in Kabul. The assistant takes care of the production process.
Women get regular training that will help them to self-management. They should be aware of their rights and thus live their lives in self-confidence within their community. Women and orphanage children get teached in English and computer skills.
