Women Learn Language and Life Skills

Women’s Empowerment Centres, Afghanistan

 

The English class students are getting better, month after month. I am personally working to download contemporary English lessons, audio and videos, because our students do not have access to the internet. I am equipping the trainer by giving her about 30GB worth of English contemporary materials to teach the students more effectively.
