Despite Winter, Garden Future Is Hopeful

Garden of Peace and Hope, Afghanistan

 

It is the middle of winter; there are still cold and freezing times to come. Reza*, the gardener, protected all fountains and pool wells with plastic. He also cut the flowers to be ready for spring. Security issues determined by the Ministry of Arts & Culture currently prevent us from hosting an exhibition.

Health Lessons and Booklets Help Villagers

Women’s Empowerment Centre–East, Afghanistan

 

Winter is a good time for the students to come to English class and Health lessons. The students have little free time in the summer because they have school. About 17 new girls have joined our programme this winter. These girls are from the villages around the Women’s Empowerment Centre (WEC). They are eager to learn at the Centre.

Centre Adds Joy and Language Skills

Women’s Empowerment Centre, Afghanistan

 

It has been two and a half years since we started the Women’s Empowerment Centre (WEC1). At first, the women were very traditional and hardly came to the Centre. Initially, some families didn’t want to come, even though this prevented their daughters from attending English class.
