I picked as a project i will imagine on "Learning Centers for Rural Afghan Women in Herat"
Short description of the project needs and beneficiaries:
"No education has been available to women and girls in the western province of Herat, Afghanistan, for the last decade under the Taliban regime. Project partner AIL began offering Women’s Learning Centers to women and girls in rural Herat during 2003. These education services include literacy and skills training cla****. This project will ensure continuation of these urgently needed, accessible, culturally sensitive services."
I imagine 2020 for the women who were part of this project in 2010 as including:
- education perspective:
Enabling them to read and learning English, these persons could then understand and use many sources of information: books, newspapers.
Many of the women taught also their children how to read, also skills they've mastered in the learning centers and a basic spoken English.
- economic perspective:
More confident in their skills, the women could be hired or could have started several small businesses in the area, thus evolving the regional economical environment.
- political perspective:
Some of the women took a step further and became more involved in the civil society, contributing more to community decisions.
- technological perspective:
Some of the women who were trained in the learning centers could then understand and use several devices with new technologies, thus helping the community develop in this direction as well.
