DescriptionThe Women of Hope Project is an organization that seeks to restore hope and dignity to women who have been oppressed and denied personal freedom, health, opportunity, and respect. The biggest project to date, is The Embroidery Project.  It supports a network of over 1000 women who make hand embroidered products such as table linens,  pillow covers, bookmarks, ornaments, aprons, etc., that are sold in Afghanistan and in the United States to support the individual women.  It also has been established a Learning Center in Kabul where the women can bring their products to be sold, attend classes on starting a business, and learn literacy. Women of Hope works directly with about 120 women, but countless lives benefit from the project. Each woman that participates in Women of Hope goes on to train at least six other women and most have developed neighborhood groups where they teach others to produce goods.
