I was very disappointed and stressed when the new government took place because it was so hard for me to enroll in this program, and suddenly I couldn't learn anything, but when I heard about the resuming of the program, I was very happy.
I never make absences, and I'll do my best to receive all the trainings I can. When I go home, I explain what I learned to my mother-in-law and my neighbors, who really enjoy it. Now, when I forget to share what I have learned with them, they ask me because they are very interested as well. This connection and interest make me so happy and grateful for all I'm receiving from WfWI!
I had the sensation that I was blind before joining this program. We didn't know about anything. We didn't know our rights. My husband wasn't good to me, and my mother-in-law was always arguing with me, but now I have learned a lot, and I try to have patience and talk to them about my rights, and they are now good to me.
My husband was jobless, but now he is working as a watchman in a hospital in Kabul. I also learned about savings, and since then, I've been saving some of my stipends. I have received some chickens, and now I'm talking to my trainer about an opportunity to get a loan from our saving box, so I can buy more chickens to create a chicken farm. With our economic improvement, I could also pay for the admission of my children to a private school, which will give them a better future. So, all I can see is positive changes in my future thanks to this program.
