Street Girl at the Bazaar

These little girls sell scarves (chador) on the street towards ISAF. My co-worker and an American who has been in country eight years were able to sponsor the the girls for the Women's Bazaar at Camp Eggers. This photo was taken just after the bazaar opened. The girls were charging twice the price what they charge on the street. When I returned at bazaar closing, most of the chador were gone. The girls had fat wallets and huge smiles. The sponsor who has been here eight years told the girls mother they had made enough to get off the street. I haven't seen them the last two weeks. Success!
