SWSF Saffron Program

One of the programs that SWSF sees as a potential for women's participation in their community is farming. SWSF trained 10 women in Shoorab area of Shindand District on planting of saffron. The women were given the saffron bulps and planted them and continue to be responsible for their land under the supervision of "expert farmers". The goal is to go through the growing cycle, the harvesting, the packaging and sale of the saffron to markets up in the city of Herat.
