Kabul (BNA) Exhibition of ladies handicraft under the name of “Our industry our Identity” was opened by students of “Promote Project”.
The coordinator of the exhibition Zuhal Qadami said that this exhibition has been held by Promote Project with the cooperation of National Gallery of the MoIC and its goal is empowerment of women. These ladies are capable to produce handicrafts but lack possibility to organize exhibition and we want to show that women are capable to work, produce and management. In this exhibition different embroidery clothes, jewelries, paintings and foods have been displayed that represent and reflected our culture. Qadami went to say, our main goal is to show ladies talents as most of capable ladies are living in rural areas who own special talent in Promote Project, every trainee was paid US$ 60 and we managed to hold exhibition.
Talking on the project, Madina Astana one of the students of the course said that Promote Project is for empowering of women by women for women in two sections of Jawanaha and Royesh. In Royesh section the trainees are taught six months theoretically including three months practice in government and NGO to learn work for future employment. She added, in Javanaha section, three months theoretical including one month practice. The trainees select their project and present a report of implementation to relevant office. We learnt in Javanaha section and held this exhibition. Women can sell their products and earn income. The trainees can address violence against women, huge dowry etc. She continued, Promote wants to know how is the level of ladies’ inability, how they plan a program so their primary programs be changed to a project. In this program we chose this exhibition to evaluate our capability. Because there are ladies who have products but don’t afford to pay shop rent. So we chose National Gallery which is a proper place for exhibition. Talking on holding of this exhibition, in charge of National Gallery Sabera Rahmani said, such exhibitions show capabilities of talented girls and provide essential opportunities for youth and ladies. They have capability to perform better work and innovate in different fields particularly in arts, handicrafts.
She added, large number of ladies are living in rural villages who have high talents but cannot display their talents to people. These young girls collect their products from different places and display them in these exhibitions which is one of the positive activities of these girls. This exhibition had large visitors and was appreciated. Sayed Enayatullah Asadi director of exhibition of National Gallery said, so far we have organized 38 exhibitions according to order of the MoIC and all personnel have taken part in decor and design of exhibition, which have been opened by acting MoIC Prof. Bawari. Assadi added, we plan to organize three more exhibitions including carpet weaving, Refugee Children on the street and the world women day. All exhibitions are held free of charge for domestic artists. But for foreign exhibitions we taken tax only for the hall.
