Creating Jobs For Rural Afghans

Saffron comes from inside the amethyst-colored saffron crocus and is so fragile, it must be hand-harvested. 🍴 The flowers are gathered as soon as they open, early in the morning. Experts carefully separate the three stigmas from 150,000 blossoms to collect a kilogram of saffron. ❤

Hot, dry winds. Semi-arid landscape. Fragile purple blooms.

While serving in Afghanistan, 🌎 members of the US military met impoverished farmers trying to provide for their families. Back home, these veterans couldn't stop thinking about the people they'd met. 🙇‍

They had an idea. Plant saffron.

Saffron is a valuable cash crop that loves the harsh Afghanistan climate. ☀ The delicate work of harvesting it provides hard-to-find jobs for many women. That's a big deal, considering that 80% of Afghanistan's population depends on the rural agricultural economy.
