Miss Nadera Sadat a high student from Balkh province says that she continued her education with more difficulties and her family encouraged her a lot. So I completed high school and became a teacher for the first time in Armaghan Educational center where I taught Pashto and helped other students in other school subjects in order to serve best for my community. I worked hard and learnt computer skills as well. That enhanced my capacity further and got familiar to perform the administrative tasks as well.
I joined ALC Balkh and taught Dari, Pashto, Islamic subject and English. I also a course on the name of house management for women and trained the Afghan women to manage their household jobs, income and expenses very well. Simultaneously being a teacher of ALC I also started to get preparation to pass the Kankor or university entry test of exam. Regarding the high educational service for youth provided by ANAFAE ALCs she said “this program is really productive for those students who want to get higher education it helps them to have a chance to get admission in their favorite faculties. I completed the Concor preparation and passed to literature faculty the field I liked so much. Now I am in third class of Dari literature”. She added that education is a must for all men and women. With education we cannot develop and will deprive of bright future. The educational services provided by ANAFAE are really useful for youth and contribute to ensure their success in future as well.
She wished for the continuation of these education programs and advised other youth to take full benefit of these valuable opportunities and enhance their capacities and skills.
