Turquoise Mountain is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that was established in 2006 at the request of HE The President of Afghanistan and HRH The Price of Wales. Its aim is to revive Afghanistan's traditional crafts and regenerate Murad Khane, a historic area of Kabul's old city. To these ends it has established the nation's first Institute for Afghan Arts and Architecture and is working in Murad Khane to restore its historic buildings and protect its community. By investing in historic buildings and traditional crafts, Turquoise Mountain is raising living standards, creating employment, and promoting Afghanistan's sense of cultural identity.
