Art of embroidery and the women of Goldozi

The Goldozi Project (“Goldozi” means “embroidery” in Dari) is a four-year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), awarded in April 2018 to FHI 360 under the Afghan Jobs Creation Program (AJCP).

Goldozi aims to create and improve jobs in Afghanistan’s embroidered products value chain; and support trade promotion and facilitate increased exports of embroidered products.

Goldozi represents embroidered products that are ethically and authentically made by Afghan women. The Goldozi Project promotes 500 lead entrepreneurs, who are predominantly women, with knowledge of the embroidered products value chain and have business and entrepreneurial interests.
