Description:

Boumi was founded by an Afghan-American woman, Hassina Sherjan, as a social enterprise that creates employment and learning opportunities for its employees in Afghanistan―women, refugees, widows, and men―and currently sells home décor products ranging from cushion covers to placemats, napkins, curtains, and more. Its products are crafted from Afghan-grown cotton products, and combine a unique blend of traditional Afghan indigenous designs with contemporary trends. Sherjan also founded Aid Afghanistan for Education, a successful NGO educating over 3,000 female students in nine provinces since 2003. Please join us for this important trunk show to show your support and help.
