Afghanistan: Kabul businesswoman providing professional training to homeless women, students

A businesswoman in Kabul is fighting all odds in Taliban-ruled Afghanistan to provide work and professional training to more than fifty women in the city.

Freshta Hashmi told Tolo News that the purpose of creating this workshop is to support homeless women and students.

She is running small businesses for the past 7 years of her career.

"My goal is for women to work so they can find bread for their families. Since the government of the Islamic Emirate has come, our business has fallen, there are no sales; People do not have money to buy,” Freshta Hashmi told Tolo News.

Some students in her workshop urged the Afghanistan government to support domestic products.

“I was a 12th-grade student when I was banned from going to school. I had dreams of finishing school. I will go to university, study in the pilot department. I am a sixteen-year-old young girl who has many dreams and I hope that the Islamic Emirate will open the schools again so that I can study,” Fatima Ahmadi, a student, told Tolo News.

Meanwhile, Taliban's Ministry of Information and Culture said that it is trying to create more exhibitions for women in the handicraft sector.
“Whatever our sisters need for handicrafts, sometimes we provide markets and exhibitions in the National Gallery for them,” said Atiqullah Azizi, deputy of culture in the Ministry of Culture and Information.
