Classes for women and girls

By Elizabeth Appleyard | Program Administrator

One of the popular classes at centers is computing. Students kept up with their studies both in the classroom and at home during the year. In one month, there were 1,432 computer students across the 48 centers in 8 provinces including Kabul and Herat.  Computing and English are important as they provide the opportunity for employment.

Tailoring is another income generating skills and in one month there were 1,987 students studying this course. Women go on to make clothes for their families and start small businesses sewing for others, some also become sewing teachers.

“My name is Nafisa. I am 29-years-old and have 3 children and unfortunately, my husband died in an accident. After this we suffered so many economic and social problems. In that situation I could not fulfill the basic need of food for my children. During quarantine days I was able to use my sewing skills and earn some money from my customers to provide for my children. It made all the difference!” 

Thank you for your support.
