PARSA is revitalizing 10 women’s nanwais (bakeries) in Kabul, helping them become more productive so they can move from supplying friends and family, to selling in the local market. This will allow them to better support themselves and their families.

See the report from our May 5, 2013 visit to 6 of our Kabul nanwais.
