> Threads of Hope

It was such a delight to get to visit the Threads of Hope project for the first time in Mazar-e-Sharif. We have been working with this group long distance for a couple of years and Megan from our office in Dallas went to live and work with this group full time. Megan returned to the US and got married this week, Congrats Megan- you are so missed and loved here. The work that she and others have put into this project is evident by the progress of the widows, and they have learned so much. This project was started to give a livelihood to the widows in this region. In just two years, the project has grown and it's no longer necessary for foreigners to be part of the daily operations. We were greeted with the production team in the sewing room and then had a design meeting in the shop that was opened recently. As I walked around the production room and saw their design boards I was so aware of the care and planning they were putting into their line of cards etc. They showed me three belt samples that I had ordered earlier this year and they had made lovely bags for each. We worked on the sizing and several other things and I placed an immediate order for holiday and winter and they had a special surprise for me, look what they made made from a burqua, Christmas ornaments!
