Support Us In Changing Lives
Ejaad is an embroidery and educational project fostering social change for Afghan women. We also work with smaller projects where humanitarian relief is much needed.
We now have 30 women involved in our project, with many of them being sole income earners for their families. Being able to sell their embroideries on a global market enables them to support their families and empowers them to be part of important decision making, creating pride and a sense of accomplishment. It also offers leadership opportunities and we have loved seeing many of our artisans flourish and grow since joining Ejaad!
Donations within Japan can be made here.
If you would like to partner with us to sell our products or join our growing schools service learning opportunities please contact us.
Your gift goes towards making a difference in the lives of 25 women and their families.
Ejaad grew from the desire of a small group of friends connected across the globe to provide economic and educational opportunities while promoting traditional embroidered craft reflecting Afghanistan’s rich artistic and cultural heritage.
We provide opportunities in a safe and discreet neighborhood to enrich the lives of our Ejaad artisans, who are restricted by social and cultural boundaries.
Designs are passed on from mother to daughter, and shared among sisters, cousins and close friends, creating a sense of pride and cultural identity.
