I need to learn how to write. Literacy courses at the Women’s Garden. Kabul, Afghanistan
In Afghanistan, the illiteracy rate is still very high: 83% of women, 55% of men (UNESCO, 2017).
Many government employees do not know how to read and write. The Kabul Department of Women Affairs (DoWA) asked Nove Onlus to start a literacy class for 20 employees who had never had access to education.
The course was located at the Women’s Garden in Kabul, and started in Spring 2017, lasting 12 months. At its end, the DoWA requested another course, and the project has been extended for a year, involving new beneficiaries.
The goal of the course is to improve the socioeconomic situation of the beneficiaries, through giving them access to education.
