"Education is the Solution of the War on Terror"

Afghanistan is the hottest issue and central focus of the world from last ten years, has experienced different kinds of war for more than three decades is in hard need of change and change agents, not only for the seek of its own growth and survival but for having the peaceful world as well so as a change agent the challenging which is threaten for making change in the country is the security concern, prejudice behavior of people against the women due to lack of knowledge, strict cultural values which bound women action and lack in accessing and support of top governmental bodies.

As an individual familiarize with her community the barriers and challenges which are presented in the path of change can be sorted out by creating the awareness of women empowerment importance in having an organized and developed society where grooming of personalities rely upon women participation in society and by giving the emphasize to the formal education of the vulnerable and war victimized areas where violence against women is in its high peak and exploitation in the war is 100 %.

The overall gross root problem of these challenges lie in lack of education not only in women but also in men because of which majority of people have a century before out dated thinking in this globally advanced era which is obstacle not only in the way of change but also in developing themselves as a result of which the prejudice behavior against women see in women as well.

Online community like pulse wire serves as a great platform in communicating with diverse community people, sharing and seeking ideas from them for overcoming the barriers which we face in the way of our work with the help and support of each other and sharing resources and expertise with one another for attaining objectives, as its saying that two heads are better than one head so ideas generated from multiple heads is effective in making a good action plan for overcoming challenges furthermore the collaborative voices are stronger than a single voice which easily resist against any barrier.

For tackling out the Afghan society from blind darken age the international community making effort in developing new Afghanistan and in bringing peace but their effort outcome is differ from what they determined and planned mainly because of missing to focus in the key point of Education, pulse wire would be the effective opportunity for me in reaching the international community policy makers to divert all their attention to the educational system of my country and pressurizing our government in making standard educational plan and courses for the people.

Education is the Solution...

Thank you for bringing the voice of Afghan women to us in a real, experiencial way. The media is politicized and does not highlight their plight with much depth or substance. I do know that in Kabul and other larger cities, women have made strides politically and socially, but as for the women of the villages and tribal areas, little is publicized and, therefore, little is known. Yes, education is the key to reducing/eliminating discrimination against women, but it will be a long haul to counter the cultural barriers that exist in your or any country that is patriarchal. I'm sure you know that an educated woman is a feared woman in many nations. I think women have lived in fear long enough. It may very well be time for the oppressors to deal with the outcome of their centuries of prejudice and discrimination. It will not be easy, will not happen tomorrow, but so much change and freedom are taking hold globally that we must not give up hope or stop working for what is right and just. I wish you luck, success, and strength.

Dear Earthwindfire,

Dear Earthwindfire,
Thanks too much for taking out your time to read my article, it seems that you know quite well about the situation of Afghanistan. Yes you are right but you know the media seems to free over there but its not like that because every warlord launched a media channel for himself, most of the violence and rape happened by their group that is the main reason that the media do not broadcast most of the cases.
Alot of thanks for you wish.
Have a nice time

Recovery

Meena,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences in Afghanistan. I completely agree with you that education is key, both for men and women, to help move past prejudices, empower women, and to recover from the horrors of war. Oftentimes education is overlooked when considering how to help a country recover from war, but as you discuss, it is too important to push aside. Keep up the good work advocating for education in Afghanistan!

Wishing you peace,

Jessica

Yes!

Meena Afghan,

You are one hundred percent right about education. Our whole world would be better if everyone could be educated and work with each other to solve problems. It is extremely helpful for those of us far away from your country and who have not traveled there to hear your detailed description of what is going on there. Keep using your words!

Dear Meena,

I am deeply touched by your words, courage and determination to advocate for Education for both men and women in Afghanistan. You have a vibrant, bright spirit which only grows stronger with your vision to build bridges and partnership with women and people around the world.

Yes, there are many challenges and barriers but HOPE, DETERMINATION and Global Partnerships can light the way.

Education is a universal human right and critical in achieving peace and democracy. Meena, THANK YOU for giving voice to the women in Afghanistan and they are not alone. Keep writing and sharing your stories, never losing sight or faith in your dream.

thanks to you Linda

Dear Linda M. Andon,
Thanks too much for your sweet wording and encouragment, I am here in worldpulse to build bridges and partnership with all around women.
You highlighted a very brilliant idea for education, but the problem is that in Afghanistan mostly people has no knowledge and awareness about internet and the internet services also do not work properly, only few people are benefiting from it who has a good earning.

Thanks to worldpulse for giving me voice and meeting to nice and sweet women like you.
