Women Forbidden from Education Get It

Women’s Empowerment Centre, Afghanistan

 

We completed our three-year Women Empowerment Centre (WEC) project in Western Bamyan during the allotted three years. We have worked in many areas with them, from teaching the English language to Health and Transformation Community Development (TCD) lessons. Many girls and boys have learnt English, and many women have been empowered to learn Birth Life Saving Skills (BLiSS), small business through Income Generation lessons, and literacy courses.

 

Fahima* was forbidden to go to school during her childhood, and she would have remained uneducated if not for our Women Empowerment Centre. When we started literacy lessons, she passionately came to learn to read and write. Now Fahima is incredibly happy because during her three years attending WEC, she not only learnt to read and write, but also learnt mathematics and how to keep her family healthy through the Health lessons we provided.

 

Thank you!
