On July 6th, Community Services Pakistan began a three month training of 25 young women in the art of Kashmiri Pehran. The objectives of the Pehran Project are to establish a women's handmade Gurase Valley brand to increase the visibility and value of female hand-made products and to increase the skills and opportunities for the young women, many of whom have only a primary level education.
Bringing much needed training and economic opportunities to women living in rural Afghanistan was made possible through a fundraising campaign supported by Rockflower and The Community Service Program, a multi-disciplinary non-governmental organization working to generate and revitalize Kashmir's rural economy.
During the winter of 2015, Rockflower funded a 6 month pilot project to provide a temporary maternal health center in the hilly, remote villages surrounding Muzzafarabad, the capital of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan.
The center provided local women access to maternal health care - many for the first time. The project was launched and managed by Rockflower partner - Community Services Program - Pakistan.
Rockflower is please to announce a new partnership with Community Services Program - Pakistan (CSP). The CSP is the definition of a grassroots organization creating "on the ground" solutions is some of the most remote and inaccessible locations in world.
