EMPOWER AFGHAN WOMEN

We partner directly with 94 local Afghan farms and employ more than 384 women with direct wages in Herat, Afghanistan to hand-harvest the delicate crimson stigmas of the flowers. Committed to empowering Afghan women and bolstering the country’s economy, Rumi also reinvests profits back into the agricultural and manufacturing infrastructure for farmers.

ALTERNATIVE TO OPIUM

By connecting these Afghan farmers with the international market, we can supply a premium product to US consumers while also doubling to tripling their income. Saffron is also an economic alternative to growing poppy for opium - one of the primary sources of income for the Taliban.
