Disabled Women Employed in Bamyan Soap Factory

Bamyan soap factory, established three months ago by a non-governmental organization, employs disabled people, including women, to help them build their financial situations.

According to the project manager Sirajuddin Salimi, 25 men and women were trained at the factory last month. Another 50 are currently being trained.

The factory produces 60 soaps per day and each cake of soap costs 10 AFN, while the same variety of Pakistani and Iranian soaps cost 15 AFN.

The initiative is a great assistance to the jobless women in the province and to developing the capacity of disabled ones.

According to officials, with the help of donors, the program will be expanded to Kabul, Kapisa and Laghman provinces.
