Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Rawa wasn't one of the global projects designed to provide equal education and economic opportunity to women by the game but as an afghan womans organisation set up in 1977 it seemed like one that should have been mentioned and was the one I chose to support. Life in 2020 for Afghan women has changed greatly. One of the daughters of the Afghan poet and leader Massoud is now president, she is nationally and internationally respected and her government is wise and compassionate. All Afghan children are at school, child labour is a thing of the past. Child mortality and maternal death are amongst the lowest rates in the world. Fathers and mothers have learned to read and write through excellent educational programs offered first through RAWA as an independant organisation and then through state education. Hospitals are full of Afghan doctors, male and female. Towns and villages have santiation, running water, and electricity. Business is successful, diverse, innovative and international. Employment is high and both women and men are represented at all levels equally. Afghanistan has an international reputation in film and the arts. Musicians, artists and directors are frequently recognised as leaders and recognised in international awards.

How did this all happen. It happened by international aid agencies listening to Afghan women in RAWA, listening to who they thought would work towards establishing a war free, economically stable society where women are able to establish happy homes in which to care for their children, loving environments, free from the stress of poverty and war.

How I wish this will come true in the future!

And I do believe that the Afghan people will get to this point. Perhaps not all of it (let's face it most countries struggle to meet all elements covered in your post) but a good proportion.

+1 for vision from me

I first learned of Rawa from the doc**entary, "Behind the Veil" by the amazing Saira Shah, daughter of the Sufi writer Idris Shah. What they managed to accomplish in the teeth of Taleban repression was incredible. It gives me hope that your vision may well come true.

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.
