In rural Afghanistan, social norms and a male-dominated educational legacy have helped keep many women from having access to formal schooling. Although education for women is associated with economic benefits as well as higher survival rates and better health for their children, according to UN estimates the literacy rate among rural Afghan women hovers around 10%. Barakat educates people in South and Central Asia through literacy programs, teacher training, womens empowerment, and school creation, promoting the fundamental human right to an education.
Working in the northwestern Afghan provinces of Faryab and Jowzjan, Barakat's entirely local staff introduces rural Afghan women and girls to reading and math via 10-month-long home-based literacy courses. The introductory lower-level courses, called Sowat Amausi, educate students to a third-grade-literacy level, teaching them to read Dari and understand basic mathematics while also giving them a venue in which to interact with each other in a culturally acceptable way. After the course, students have the option to enroll in the higher-level literacy course to learn Pashto, English, science, drawing, history, and other subjects or enroll in the fourth grade at a formal school. In the past eight years, Barakat has educated 3,975 Afghan girls and women in basic literacy and numeracy skills, with a 97% completion rate.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help Barakat improve literacy among Afghan women and girls. If G-Team members raise $480, Barakat can fund a 10-month lower-level literacy course for 12 Afghan women and girls. Each additional $40 raised will sponsor one additional girl's or woman's participation in the course.
