“Education is the key to success and peace”. Yes, we hear this quote every day, but for us this is a quote written in pieces of paper or painted on walls. We are living in a country which has experienced decades of civil wars. My country was and is struggling with severe economic, political, security, education hardships; however, there is the most serious problem too, societal. From an early age, I have noticed the women’s right and position in my country. How people were behaving with them, how their rights were not being taken seriously, how they were being sold. I could understand that in remote places and even in urban areas, women are still treated as mere objects for reproduction and homemaking. Lacking identity, education and vision, these women as well as minor females are constantly subjected to domestic domination and deprivation. One of the most important rights of women which is not taken seriously is education. According to UNISCO, in Afghanistan, Of the 774 million adults (15 years and older) who still cannot read or write, two–thirds of them (493 million) are women. Some 47 percent of Afghan men and a tiny 15 percent of women can read and write, according to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF). Many Afghan women do not even make it through schools, leaving to get married (15% of all girls get married by age of 15). That’s why most of organizations and agencies working for women empowerment through education and one of them are Women Adult Learning Center.
