On Sunday, July 15, 2018, Zardozi facilitated a consultation meeting for Goldozi where Executive Director, Ms. Homa Usmany, Program Director, Ms. Hasina Aimaq and Kadars (Volunteer Members) met with Goldozi Directors Ms. Susan and her executive team at Zardozi main office. Goldozi is a similar program as Zardozi, therefore, to support the program objectives Zardozi staff and Kadars shared their two decades of experiences, and lessons learned with Goldozi. Zardozi together with Goldozi looked forward improving the livelihoods of Afghan women and discussed their future cooperation in great details.
Zardozi welcomes similar projects as Goldozi and is pleased to announce its support from projects which make an effort toward women empowerment and economic growth.
ZARDOZI is a local non‐government and non-profit organization aiming to provide economic and social services to Afghan women in four provinces such as Herat, Mazar-e-Sharif, Jalalabad and Kapisa with its main office in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Zardozi, under some of the most challenging circumstances for women in the world, has developed innovative ways to enable extremely poor women to become entrepreneurs. Zardozi hard learned lessons in developing solutions for poor Afghan women includes not only capacity building but also practical, on-going business support provided through grass roots, community-based business centres. Zardozi already works with over 6,000 poor women and is aiming to reach a higher target in the next years.
Zardozi receives donor funding from the Canadian Government through Global Affairs Canada. The funding runs from March 2017 to March 2021 which makes a substantial contribution towards the costs of Zardozi’s programs to achieve its goals and objectives.
