Monsoon Accessorize to continue supporting education projects and communities in Afghanistan

Monsoon Accessorize has announced that it will continue to support projects relating to women and children’s education in Afghanistan following the country’s takeover by the Taliban.

In a statement, the retailer said the Monsoon Accessorize Trust has been supporting these types of projects for over 20 years in Kabul and has recently committed to fund a school for children in Bamiyan with a large carpet weaver community

Both the trust and company have a history of working with handicrafts from Afghanistan going back to 1976 following founder Peter Simon’s overland journey to Asia.

Monsoon Accessorize said: “Recent events have made our commitment to our current project, supporting the education for over one hundred children and young people, even greater. Our project involves children of both genders up to the age of 12. At this time, more than any, they need our full support and we are investigating how to continue to provide the financial support and so continue their education and a respite from the current turmoil.”

Previously, the trust funded Christian Aid to rebuild silk cultivation by working with women’s groups in Herat through the provision of silkworms and training on silk production. The funding meant that more local women were able to earn an income and have a stronger voice in their communities.
