Our Journey:
Empowering Afghan Women

Inception (2018)

Hello, I'm Selai, a teacher, activist, and a firm believer in the power of education and empowerment. It was in 2018, during my time in Afghanistan, that I was deeply moved by the remarkable strength and potential of Afghan women. With a burning desire to create sustainable change in people's lives, I, along with my dedicated coordinators in Afghanistan, embarked on a mission to empower these resilient women.

 

Empowering Through Craft (2018-2022)

For four years, we toiled relentlessly, hand in hand with these incredible women. Together, we crafted beautiful bags, each one a testament to their determination and our shared hope. These creations journeyed to Switzerland, where they found homes with people who appreciated not just the bags but also the dreams they carried. Through these sales, we did more than provide an income; we sowed the seeds of pride and independence.

 

Official Recognition (2022)

In 2022, with Jonas  standing beside us, we achieved official recognition in Switzerland. This milestone not only marked a significant step in our journey but also reinforced my commitment to my lifelong mission: to create sustainable changes in people's lives and empower women in Afghanistan.

 

Breaking Barriers (2023)

The challenges of 2023 introduced us to a new mission: breaking the education ban faced by Afghan women. I'm a teacher at heart, and I understand the transformative power of education. So, we launched an online English school, aiming to provide Afghan women with language skills, and more importantly, the key to unlock a world of opportunities.

 

Forging Partnerships (2023 and Beyond)

In August 2023, I was thrilled to announce our partnership with the Afghan University of Medical Science, led by Dr. Maiwand Ahmadsai. As an activist, this collaboration holds a special place in my heart. Together, we are pooling our resources and expertise to create comprehensive education and employment programs for Afghan women. This partnership represents a step toward sustainable change and empowerment.
