If it beads it leads: Hand in Hand entrepreneurs make the Afghan news

21 Nov 2014

When Hand in Hand Afghanistan celebrated its job creation programme in Balkh province earlier this week, local staff and entrepreneurs weren’t the only ones to attend. As the news cameras rolled, speakers including Shahla Hadid, Head of Women’s Affairs in Balkh province, and Gululai Hotak, Head of the Department of Work and Social Affairs, took turns praising the programme, which wrapped up this month.

The real stars, however, were the entrepreneurs themselves, many of whose products went on display. Watch video below, then visit our Hand in Hand Afghanistan page to learn more about our work in the country.
