Sharbat Gula is the latest in a long line of successful rescues. More than 300 vulnerable Afghan women and their families have so far been given safe passage by our incredible team on the ground. So many more are waiting for your help. Please give to our UK GoFundMe or our USA GoFundMe fundraisers now.

Aayenda Jewelry, a project of the non-profit, Future Brilliance, develops and markets beautiful, contemporary, Afghan jewelry, creating opportunity for hundreds of local artisans, especially women. Our vision is a world of empowered young women supporting one another creatively – and economically. Aayenda Jewelry is hand-crafted by members of the Aayenda Jewelry Co-Operative. So far, work has been generated for over 1200 artisans (including 300 war widows) and over 30 skilled Afghan jewelers and gem cutters, trained to international standards by Future Brilliance Afghanistan Organisation (FBAO).

Aayenda Jewelry: Gems of Hope

The ground-breaking work of Future Brilliance and its social enterprise, Aayenda Jewelry, has been profiled on TV and radio, in magazines, and newspapers, internationally, including BBCTV, Mail on Sunday, and Rapaport, the world’s leading jewelry trade magazine. In 2016, Aayenda Jewelry graced the front covers of various issues of Cosmopolitan Magazines throughout the world, modelled by supermodel and actress, Alessandra Ambrosio.
