In rural Afghanistan, job opportunities are scarce - especially for women. Oxfam has helped a group of women to set up a bakery in their village, with the goal of improving the lives of the women and their families by helping them earn a living.
The bakery gives them not only an income, but a place to discuss what matters to them - like an education for their children.
