Zardozi, Persian for “golden embroidering”, was created almost 30 years ago to give Afghan refugees an opportunity to earn an income in Pakistan. Today, thousands of Afghan women living in the rural areas of eastern Afghanistan or in the refugee camps of border areas earn a stable income through Zardozi by embroidering and creating handmade art. A personal income gives the women a stronger position in the family and the community, and enables them to get medical care and educate their children. NGO Mondo imports Zardozi’s products to Estonia to support Afghan women’s entrepreneurship and better welfare.
