This group of 10 women will knit sweaters and hats for babies. Once a month they will have a session with a health educator. The HOBI and OMAID Afghanistan team visited them today in Bibi Mahro, in outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan.
We are starting a partnership with Omaid Afghanistan so that Afghan women can knit sweaters, socks, hats and blankets and get this way some employment. Today we had to go to a bazaar in Kabul to find suitable yarn for the baby items! They had nice colors but the quality was not really good, but we chose the ones that were softest. As we bought so much, a man helped with a wheelbarrow to take them to the car.
