Girls learn at a 'keeping yourself safe' workshop

Hagar Afghanistan rounded out 2012 with encouragement and hope. Over the past year, we saw numerous women and children find protection and begin to participate in their own healing. At the end of the year, 31 clients were becoming whole again. 

Many experienced education for the first time. Some learned job skills and began to earn a salary. One by one, we saw clients overcome tragedy and experience empowerment. One by one, they began to understand they have value, deserve respect, and that they will be treated with dignity at Hagar.

"For the first time in my life, someone is asking me about my future plans and giving me support for my future." -- Sima, healing with Hagar.
