The ASEEL Platform (https://Aseel.xyz) is the only platform that empowers women handmade product artisans from Afghanistan to sell their products globally. We started with an IOS App with money raised from our own team and have delivered the project. However, we need a web based app as well because most of our users visit from a computer or an android phone.

We currently have 14 partners that are from different provinces of Afghanistan, the artisans who are mainly women groups are identified to be working on less than $5 a day. The promise we have made to them is that so long as they are making quality products with their hands we will be working on the platform to sell them.

We believe in 6 weeks working with 2 freelancers we will deliver the website store (https://aseel.xyz) and also connect it to our social medias (Instagram and Facebook) for direct sales. We believe this will double our current sales and assist the artisans to produce in a bigger quantity.

Overall, we believe this will have an impact on adding to the economic ability of at least 700 women in a span of 2 years.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
