 14.  PRESBYTERIAN SHARING: International Literacy Day (Sept. 8) “Neither the students nor I were actually enjoying the lessons.” Inayatullah, a teacher at Zangue Girls School in Afghanistan, knew his lecture-based teaching style was ineffective. Since attending teacher-training workshops run by Presbyterian World Service & Development partners, Inayatullah has learned to bring life to his lessons. After implementing more practical teaching methods, Inayatullah’s pupils are engaging in group activities, participating in lively discussions and better learning their lessons. With a greater sense of ownership over their education, they are gaining confidence, asking questions and voicing their opinions. By improving the quality of education, PWS&D is helping more children enjoy their studies and become leaders in their communities. “This is a tremendous achievement for both the students and me,” Inayatullah says with a smile.
