On October 10th Karin Bruers and Alham Omar Hotaki, the CEO of CRIDA, signed an agreement for a woman empowerment project in Afghanistan incorporating know-how in the field of mosaic. The knowledge obtained by Social Sofa will be shared with entrepreneurial Afghan women to support the restructuring of the environment, neighborhoods, mosques, buildings and walls. Karin Bruers will also contribute in increasing the Afghan mosaic market. Thanks to Moheb, an Afghan refugee working at the Social Sofa studio, she was able to get in contact with the Afghan authorities.
The portraits of the Afghan President and the First Lady as created by Social Sofa are displayed below.
