Girls Gain Strength and Knowledge at Centre

Women’s Empowerment Centre–East, Afghanistan

 

English class and Health lessons are going well at the Women’s Empowerment Centre—East (WEC2). English students also learnt Transformational Community Development (TCD), which included Health lessons once a week. 

 

Meanwhile, we are also working to physically empower girls. They now have a volleyball team and play inside the school yard. We encouraged them to be active when we started WEC2. We bought them a ball and also gave the students support by cheering them on! 

 

The winter season is the best time for the girls to come to the centre because the schools are closed.  They are passionate about coming to WEC2 every day to learn English. They love learning TCD lessons about sustainability, community ownership, and hygiene. 

 

Traditionally, the people did not allow their daughters to attend English class and play sports. WEC2 is bringing about change (transformation) in this and the surrounding communities.

 

Thank you!
