Empowering female via spritual support


Before war in Afghanistan, a family lived normal and comfortable life. The father of family was government employee, the mother was a teacher and their children were student.
When the war started, they immigrated to Peshawar city of Pakistan and became jobless till the time they were suggested by of one of Afghan friends to start Carpet weaving business.
The mother happily accepted the suggestion, but felt sad about her husband who cannot help her due being mentally ill which was caused by being jobless so the mother of the family started the business, she became busy in buying material for Carpet.
One day I went to their home to visit the family. I saw their children who were busy in Carpet weaving. They seemed so week when I asked their mother that why they are so weak. Her mother said that in one side they enough food isn’t available to them and in other side they don’t have time for playing and rest due to working very hard. When I saw the children, I became so sad.
I wanted to help them so I sent them some food. Besides, when I went to office I mentioned story in office so I introduced her to AIL technical workshop. she finish it successfully and than I hired her as a teacher. After then she stopped Carpet weaving.
Further more, I regestered her children in school and older son to Gawhar Shad Begum College and he graduated successfully from there. The elder daughter also finished her school and than she joined English and computer courses. When they come to Afghanistan, they earned salary and they live happily.
