Gathering and Helping Women

Bamyan Women's Center & Nayak Women's Center, Afghanistan

Recently, the GHNI-Afghanistan team has developed a strategy to meet one of the biggest needs of the country—to help the women. Accordingly, GHNI has decided to start several Women’s Centers. First of all, we plan to start a couple of centers in a rural region. The main purpose is to provide economic empowerment for the women. We will be providing training and opportunities to produce and sell handicrafts. However, another key is to train the women in the benefits of and how to produce a kitchen garden. This will allow the women to provide diverse vegetables for their family, cutting down on their food budgets, but also enable them to sell the extra produce to supplement their household income.  We will also promote health and education opportunities through these centers. 

 

Likewise in Kabul, we are partnering with some women who recently started a Women’s Center there.  The reason this center is so important is because men can meet in a park, or tea house, but women can’t. They can’t even have other women come to their homes. Therefore, some women have started a Women’s Center that provides not only training in handicrafts but also some professional counseling and free dental care. The focus of all of these centers is to provide holistic health to one of the most neglected and vulnerable populations on earth.
