Challenge

After the invasion of Afghanistan by Soviet troops in 1979, approximately 8 million people became refugees in Pakistan and Iran. Many relocated in the camps of Pakistan's Northwest frontier Province. These events, and more recent patterns of civil strife in Afghanistan, have completely devastated educational opportunities for Afghans, particularly girls.

Solution

This center offers teacher training, English, literacy, math, and computer classes. Skills like sewing and carpet weaving are also taught. Leadership and human rights classes teach women how to assert their rights in a culturally sensitive way.

Long-Term Impact

This project will result in the increased education of Afghan women in the region. The knowledge of income generating skills, as well as leadership skills will help these women to support themselves and their families.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
