I need to learn how to write.

Kabul, Afghanistan, 2017 – ongoing

In Afghanistan, around 70% of the population is illiterate: 83% of women and 55% of men, on average (UNESCO, 2017). Many government employees do not know how to read and write.

The Kabul Department of Women’s Affairs (DoWA) asked Nove Onlus to start a literacy class for 20 employees who had never had access to education, with the aim of improving their social and economic situations.

The course was located at the Women’s Garden in Kabul, and started in August 2017, lasting 12 months. At its conclusion, the DoWA requested another course (August 2018 – July 2019) and then two more, starting in October 2019, whose beneficiaries are only women.

Lessons were suspended in March 2020, due to the closure of all educational activities during the Covid-19 pandemic. There are 5 months left to complete the courses and they will be resumed as soon as possible.

Since 2017, 74 people have been enrolled in the courses (more than 90% of them are women).
