Literacy courses concluded at our Women Empowerment Centre (WEC). Forty women learnt how to read and write in Farsi, and they also learnt some mathematics. A little more than a year ago most of these women had difficulties even counting money.
The women are still participating in health lessons. Our hygiene trainer contacted the Director of Health in Bamyan to get more lessons and new materials for our students. The English class is going well, there are 50 students learning English in two different classes. The lower class finished their books. Soon they will start a new, more advanced book.
The following is a good example of the multiplying effect that Transformational Community Development (TCD) can have: Two girls who started an English class with us less than two years ago have started their own English course. Each of them has about 25 students–and they continue to also attend our English course!
Thank you very much for your interest and engagement. It is our honour to lift people out of poverty and improve their lives!
