 Afghanistan: If you educate a woman, you teach the whole family

It has often been said that education lies at the heart of all advancement.

 

Back in the centre, Jamila Niazi from the Ministry of Women's Affairs was of the same mind. A former high school head mistress, Mrs Niazi has been instrumental in helping to open up opportunities for women in Helmand.

 

“We have done a lot to encourage religious and community leaders, and the media too, to advocate for women's education,” she explained, “to ask men to allow their wives and daughters to do vocational training. As a result, there are now 1,000 women who come to this centre to learn tailoring or computer skills. And we are glad that the ICRC is training women farmers,” she concluded. “If you educate a woman, you teach the whole family.”
