Overcoming Poverty Through Education

GHNI started the Women’s Empowerment Center in June 2018. Our goal is to teach them how to become self-sustainable and to help support their families.

The people in the Bamyan region are poor, and the women were trying to find some income to help their families. They are uneducated and don’t have any work skills except some embroidery and handicrafts. Most of these women were not able to pay 60 afghani (about $0.80) for the taxi to get themselves to the local bazaar in central Bamyan. Some of them were walking and it would take two hours to walk there and back home.

At this center, we are also teaching English to Bamyan teenagers. About 30 students are enthusiastically learning English. The local elders and women are very grateful to GHNI for establishing our Women’s Empowerment Center.
