I need to learn how to write.

Kabul, Afghanistan. Project ongoing.

In Afghanistan, around 57% of the population cannot read and write: 70% of women and 45% of men, on average (UNESCO, 2020).

Some government employees do not know how to read and write, and the Department of Women’s Affairs (DoWA) in Kabul asked Nove Onlus for a literacy course for 20 employees who have never had any type of education, with the aim of improving their socio-economic standing.

The course, started in August 2017 and located in the Women’s Garden, lasted for 12 months. At its conclusion the DoWA requested another course.

Nove Onlus has launched a new annual course (August 2018 – July 2019) and then a further 2, started in October 2019 and reserved only for women. Classes were suspended in March 2020 due to the closure of all educational activities due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The courses, attended by a total of 74 people, ended in February 2021.

Operative Partners: Department of Women’s Affairs (DoWA) Kabul.

Sponsors: Zonta Club Milano Sant’Ambrogio and Rotary Club Arco Della Pace.
