Rubia promotes women’s empowerment through education and  income generation from the sale of  their heritage handwork. We work with women in Afghanistan and Manchester, New Hampshire who are rebuilding their lives after prolonged conflict and displacement.

Join the Movement for Girls' Education and Change the World

On March 20, for the second time this month Rubia will co-sponsor the showing of “Girl Rising,” the feature film at the center of a  global campaign  to educate girls.


We at Rubia believe that empowerment of  — not violence towards —women and girls is the key to progress in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Rubia salutes Malala Yousafzai   for her bravery in speaking out for girls’ education in Pakistan. May the power of this 14 year old’s voice echo and revolutionize girls’ education in the region.

Rubia is more than handwork production. It is a community building, education and empowerment vehicle for women and their families.
