Project Ashayer aims to empower young girls and women of nomadic tribes across Iran to be self-reliant. Women's opportunities to participate in the economy are severely curtailed in many areas by traditional expectations. We educate and collaborate with young girls and women by encouraging them to make beautiful handicrafts. Project Ashayer travels across the country to raise awareness and provide opportunities. We are excited to see women find new purpose and self-esteem by starting their own small businesses.
