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.

Tending the Garden of Good Intentions

Garden of Peace & Hope, Afghanistan

 

Recently, the Garden of Peace and Hope looked beautiful and still green with autumnal flowers. We had no exhibition this month because of security concerns related to the presidential election. The gardener and I worked on a section near one of the pools where the ground sank. We worked for a week to rebuild it.

Ladies Learn Literacy in English

Women’s Empowerment Centre, Afghanistan

 

Women are coming to class daily to learn English. We decided to change the environment of the class. Last time we brought 16 different kinds of fruits and vegetables to show the students. This provided a practical opportunity to learn the names of each one!  We will continue practical lessons for the women that they can apply in their daily lives.
