AAF (since 1982) employer of 25000 female artisans https://www.aarong.com/us/newspost/ayesha-abed-foundation.html    Aarong (since 1978) https://www.aarong.com/about-aarong
Ayesha Abed Foundation (AAF) Centers In 1982 the Ayesha Abed Foundation (“AAF”) was established to commemorate the memory and work of the late Mrs. Ayesha Abed, a BRAC staff member and spouse of the late Sir Fazle Hasan Abed, founder of BRAC. The Foundation was created to provide an appropriate working environment, financial and technical assistance and training to develop women’s skills in various crafts. The AAF’s first project, the Manikgonj Centre was opened on September 3, 1983. As of 2020, the Ayesha Abed Foundation operates 15 AAF centres and over 700 sub centers that are responsible for employing over 25,000, mainly female, artisans. The AAF aims to work with the most underprivileged women in the society; therefore, the centers and sub-centers are located in semi-urban or rural areas. AAF combines workers with other women of similar socioeconomic background and provides and environment focused on achievement and personal growth. Women are trained and then given the opportunity to generate income and increase their job responsibility over time. Additionally, the AAF centres and sub-centre workers are given access to the other BRAC programmes. The AAF produces handicraft items that require a large labour input. The vast majority of the women employed at the sub-centre level perform the embroidery work and the other processes including block printing, screen printing, dyeing, tie-dyeing and weaving are performed at the main centers. Major products include: • Men’s ethnic apparel – panjabi, fatua, tagga • Women’s ethnic apparel – shalwar-kameez-dupatta, saree, yoke, coaty, long dress, korta, shawl, tagga • Household & others – bed covers, cushion covers, wall mats, tablecloths, bags, purses, napkins, stools, nakshi kantha AAF is devoted to the socio-economic empowerment of all women and therefore provides a comprehensive set of worker benefits including: • Free health check-ups and medical care for referral cases • Free eye examinations and eye-glasses • Health security scheme to subside inpatient hospitalisation • Awareness training on workers’ rights • Welfare fund and retirement benefits • Advance wage payments • Daycare centre
