The heart of DANDELION is our mission to empower women in Afghanistan. Can women in Afghanistan transform a war-torn, fractured nation into a prosperous and peaceful society? We believe they can. This is why we are investing in each of our artisans. This begins by paying our artisans a fair, living wage so they can provide for their families and serve as role models in their community. With more than 1 million artisans in Afghanistan, there is incredible potential. Our goal is to create thousands of new jobs and catalyze sustainable and inclusive economic development in Afghanistan.
