ARZU STUDIO HOPE was highlighted in a story about Boston-based nonprofit Beyond the 11th in a CBS ‘The Early Show’ special on Thursday, September 8. Since 2005, Beyond the 11th and ARZU STUDIO HOPE have worked together to bring education, healthcare and economic opportunity to women, many of them widows, in Afghanistan. Beyond the 11th has helped to fund a number of key ARZU initiatives including constructing and furnishing the ARZU Women’s Community Center in Dragon Valley, Bamyan, building the Children’s Playground at the nearby ARZU Garden Center, supporting the Peace Cord project, providing scholarships for three young women pursuing higher education and delivering bonuses for widow rug weavers.
