The Village 

The women within Bamyan, a small rural area of Afghanistan, are grouping together to strengthen their community. This project will have a significant impact on the women of this rural village area, and by extension their families and the overall community, as we seek to extend our families. The empowerment center provides teaching on holistic wellness as well as nutrition and empowering women to teach each other those same principles, with a focus on income generation and wellness. Establishing these principles will have a huge impact on helping empower women and impact their families to become self-sustaining.

Transformational Community Development©

Transformational Community Development (TCD) is a five-part coaching-based method used to create self-sustaining communities. These five parts are clean water, nutritious food, education for every boy and girl, income generation, and wellness habits. In the Bamyan Women's Empowerment Center, TCD will be used to primarily establish wellness habits, and sources of income generation. Women will create committees to determine what projects they should work on. GHNI works with these women to establish a self-sustaining source of income generation, and by extension of their families, by training and providing a venue for potential tailoring/embroidery business services.
