Our primary focus is providing basic literacy programs for women and girls in remote villages in the Bamiyan region of Afghanistan where schools and education services are very limited or non-existent. In addition to reading, writing and basic math skills information about hygiene and health issues are also taught.
The literacy program consists of 5 levels, each 6 months in duration based on, and exceeding, the requirements of the Afghan Ministry of Education. On completion of the five levels the students have the skills and knowledge to continue their education or help them find employment.
Our current literacy program, started in February 2018, is in the rural village of Zargaran and currently has 25 students enrolled. After successfully completing the first and second levels the students started their third level in October 2019 and are expected to complete the program in 2020.
