2020: Evolution of afghan women who were trained in learning centers

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.

Agent Bulent, this is a great project. Education is an enabler and when given to women can change not just 1 person but an entire family, village and even country. +1KS

agree with Shakwei. also, networks established through education process and knowledge share enable continual updates as technologies advance, ameliorating the stagnation and poverty that can arise from isolation and lack of knowledge and opportunity thank you for the post

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
