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.


They were feeling bad when we took pictures of them. Now, I see the positive changes, as they now come to the Centre regularly. They smile more and also encourage their children to attend English classes. I recently met a tiny girl who could speak English very well!


The boys and girls play football together despite the cold and snow. The students have progressed, and now most of them can speak English with ease.


TCD Update

  • Education – As the health lessons are going on, I also provided hundreds of brochures to give our trainers and people involved in our Health lessons. These brochures include stories and awareness lessons about COVID-19.
  • Wellness – We made two football teams among the English class students. They were delighted to receive footballs from us. Boys and girls play together in spite of the cold and snow on the ground.


Thank you!
