COVID-19 training

Currently, the whole world is in the grips of the greatest biological crisis that has faced mankind in more than a century.  Almost 4 weeks ago when it was only a blip on most people’s radars, we sounded the alarm and rallied the troops.  This included establishing a Global Crisis Management Team and sending our staff far and wide with the important message of how to identify the Corona Virus and prevent the spread of this deadly disease.

Equipping Women to Continue Education

Women’s Empowerment Centres, Afghanistan

 

The English language students have improved so much so far, even though they will be attending school for four to five hours daily. Usually, they have exams in the middle of the summer, and we offer them 10 days of holiday so that they can prepare for their school exams and also enjoy Eid holidays with their families.

We teach Transformational Community Development (TCD) and English to girls and boys, and the students eagerly attend the classes every day, particularly the English class. Their English is becoming so much better than before, and now they speak better English. The first class of students have finished the beginning English book. We made certificates to present as encouragement to the students.

Celebrating International Women’s Day

Women’s Empowerment Centres, Afghanistan

 

As we are teaching hygiene to the Women’s Empowerment Centre (WEC) attendees, we distributed toothbrushes and toothpaste to 100 students. We also celebrated International Women’s Day at the WEC, where we also distributed socks and soap to 140 attendees.

 

About 50 girls and boys are learning English at the WEC, and 45 women are learning literacy, hygiene, and birth life-saving skills (BLISS). The women sew traditional Afghan clothes and sell them in local markets to improve their economic conditions.

Support Women on International Women's Day

 

 

Earlier this week, we showed you some statistics that illustrated the disparity in opportunity between women and men around the world. It can be overwhelming sometimes to address a big, global issue like this, but there's good news:

March 8 is International Women's Day

It's no secret that there is a global disparity between opportunities for women and men. Women in developing nations, or in areas of extreme poverty, are particularly vulnerable to the gender gap. 

This Friday is International Women's Day, and the theme this year is "Balance for Better." The statistics below illustrate the imbalance we see in some countries today. But at GHNI, we're hopeful that someday soon, we'll see a balance for women and men in opportunity, education, income, and security. 

 

3 Ways Men Can Support International Women's Day

This Friday, March 8, is recognized as International Women’s Day. International Women’s Day was first recognized by the United Nations in 1975, and it has been celebrated annually ever since.

Internationalwomensday.com describes the goal of this day as “celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.”

Flooded with Students

Our Women’s Empowerment Centers (WEC) are run very well by our GHNI staff. The girl and boy students continue to regularly come to learn English. Now that the girls and boys are in the class together, they are enthusiastically attending in two class times. Those who are good in English come in first, and then others who are weaker come to the second class.
