Sewing Project

On behalf of ARO and my fellow team members of the board of trustees in Los Angeles, we welcome you to the educational partnership. Thus, we hope that the mutual corporations will expand in the future.

Afghanistan Relief Organization is proud to have a-twenty-four year experience in unending educational programs and charitable assistance.After the fall of Afghanistan on 14th of August into the hands of the new government, Taliban, almost all international aid agencies either left Afghanistan or suspended their operations in Afghanistan, which made the situation for girls and low level of women and needy children more difficult than ever expanded.

Since its establishment, ARO has successfully implemented and completed various projects, such as literacy for women, sewing projects, plumbing classes, car mechanics, English and computer training classes in Afghanistan even in the worsening condition in which this relief organization has continuously carried out the humanitarian operations in Afghanistan.ARO appreciates the institutional cooperation of Sahar Education, which in this bad economic condition of Afghan women and children, trusted Afghanistan Relief Organization management and supported the sewing and literacy projects.

According to the statistics of the United Nations, more than 20 million people in Afghanistan are under extreme poverty situations, most of the working women class of Afghanistan are also responsible for taking care of their families.ARO considers sewing and literacy projects much helpful for working women of Afghanistan. In addition, we also suggest that this cooperation (partnership) be expanded in other parts of educational and professional activities.On behalf of ARO and my fellow team members of the board of trustees in Los Angeles, we welcome you to the educational partnership. Thus, we hope that the mutual corporations will expand in the future.
