At Flying Scarfs we use the term Empowerment as our rallying cry. We have seen the effects of using it as a tool to drive results in each of our endeavors. Whether we're in Afghanistan, Haiti, Kenya or back home in the US, empowerment is more than just a word we throw around...it's the future.

Afghan's Mona Lisa


In 1985, photographer Steve McCurry took a picture of an Afghan orphan at age 12 (left). A decade later he found her at age 30 (right). He has won many awards for his remarkable photograph and the impression it left with its viewers. We can only imagine how difficult of a life it must have been for this woman (Sharbat Gula).
