Helping Afghan Families in Afghanistan

By Salima Biglary | Programs and Partnerships Coordinator

Recent developments in Afghanistan have brought about significant changes in the lives of women across various sectors. The landscape for women and girls, whose rights were previously constrained, particularly in education, has undergone a transformative shift. The dominance of the prevailing administration has precipitated crises, particularly economic and political, exacerbating existing challenges such as unemployment and financial instability. In response, efforts have been mobilized to address these pressing issues.

A Community Center was established in Mazar-i Sharif by an organization closely monitoring Afghan developments. The center aims to tackle emerging challenges by offering educational support and vocational training to empower the local populace. Various programs have been initiated, ranging from tailoring and carpet weaving to carpentry and literacy, alongside instruction in foreign languages and computer skills. Notably, a significant focus has been on empowering women and girls, who constitute a vital demographic in these initiatives.

Through initiatives like tailoring training, generously supported by international partners, approximately a hundred women have gained valuable skills to reintegrate into society and contribute to their families' livelihoods. Similarly, participants in carpet weaving training, alongside tailoring, are poised to become a new workforce, offering hope for economic stability in the future.

Recognizing the plight of men impacted by economic hardships, the center also offers carpentry training. Participants, like one individual whose family relied solely on his father's income, express gratitude for the opportunity to support their families post-training.

The Community Center aims to positively impact hundreds of individuals in its vicinity through its comprehensive training programs. The success of these endeavors relies heavily on continued support from generous donors, essential for extending assistance to those in need globally.
