Artisan: Turkmen Women's Active Rights Association

Artisan Turkmen Women's Active Rights Association

The Turkmen Women's Active Rights Association was established in 2005 with the aim of helping women living in remote parts of Afghanistan. TWARA works primarily with women living along the banks of the Amo River in northern Afghanistan, where many have no access to electricity, clean water, roads, schools or health care. Historically, women in this area have very low literacy rates and face overwhelming financial and economic problems.

With the establishment of the Turkmen Women's Handicraft Center, TWARA has been able to provide handicraft training to many women, as well as a market channel for their beautiful handmade products. They provide training in embroidery, carpet weaving, and stone polishing as well as guidance in marketing their goods. In addition to providing training in things like women's rights and health awareness, TWARA also provides English-language and computer workshops. TWARA is currently working in conjunction with the Ministry of Education to introduce handicraft schools in numerous provinces in Northern Afghanistan, further extending their reach to hundreds more women.

TWARA believes that by working together to create new economic alternatives, Afghan women can help rebuild their nation and lessen the hold of the Taliban. Most Afghans earn less than $1 a day -- not enough to feed their families, let alone provide an education for their children or save for the future. The Taliban seizes upon these hardships, recruiting impoverished young men by paying them more than ten times what they could otherwise earn. TWARA exists to give families a viable alternative to the Taliban by providing a worldwide market for their traditional Afghan handicrafts.
