15. PRESBYTERIAN SHARING: Human Rights Day (Dec. 10)
In many parts of the world, girls face barriers to education and
other opportunities to earn a living. In Afghanistan, Zarmina felt frustrated
by her community’s belief that a girl’s place is in the home and not in the
classroom. In an effort to make life better for her daughters, Zarmina
participated in gender equality training with PWS&D partners. Zarmina shared
what she learned about a child’s right to an education with other mothers,
fathers and village leaders. As a result of her advocacy, the community now
enthusiastically supports girls’ education. “We hope that one day there will be
no child out of school, not only in our community, but in the entire country.”
