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.

Women Benefit Greatly from WEC

Most of the girls in the local school were excited when we inaugurated the Women’s Empowerment Centre 2 (WEC) in the east.  The majority of students wanted to attend the English course, but we only had the capacity for 40 students. They are passionately coming to the centre every day except Friday.

Kitchen Garden Research

Valley of Ali, Afghanistan

 

Yakawlang has cold weather, but some of our kitchen garden vegetables like radishes and lettuce are harvested twice a year without need of a greenhouse. The local people like to eat these two kinds of vegetables more than other vegetables.

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.
