I visited the Women’s Empowerment Center (WEC) in Azhdar this week. It was cold, and I saw some snowfall in Bamyan. Within three days, I had different meetings with local people, our staff, and the students. The students are coming daily, but, unfortunately, some of the students left the class because their parents declined to give them the 250 AFN (about $3) needed for the starter book.
Additionally, the students are concerned about early coldness this year. When they enter the center at 3:30, it’s not sunny so some of them feel cold.
