NEW YORK — The onset of the holiday season often fills people with the desire to help those in need. The Body & Soul Wellness Program, a joint collaboration between the U.S. beauty industry and nonprofit charity group PARSA (Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation in Support of Afghanistan), founded by Mary MacMakin in 1996, has prompted people to do just that.
The organization, which was started in January, is heading the renovation of a beauty school — expected to be completed in January 2003 — that will give women in Kabul the opportunity to learn a trade. The curriculum has three modules — hair, makeup and business — that are designed to teach the women the skills they will need to run their own businesses.
