IBC IN SOLIDARITY WITH AFGHAN WOMEN


The regime change that took place in Afghanistan just a few years ago completely changed the way many things work in the country.

Critical developments in every field for Afghanistan and the Afghan people have completely changed the lives of women significantly. Nothing was the same anymore for women and girls, whose rights were restricted in many areas, especially in education, and who were pushed out of society not only in social life but also in business life.

The dominance of the Taliban administration in the country caused many crises, primarily economic and political. The Afghan people, who were already living under challenging conditions, began to experience problems such as unemployment and lack of cash flow, causing the number of people who lost their jobs to increase. IBC, which closely follows the developments in Afghanistan, launched the Community Center (VECC) in the city of Mazar-i Sharif a few months ago to provide solutions to the problems arising in the country.

One of the most critical missions leading to the center's opening was to enable Afghan people to acquire a profession and provide employment opportunities through the educational support provided. Within this framework, the center implemented its activities individually, from tailoring to carpet weaving, carpentry to reading, and training in many areas, from foreign languages to computer training. Of course, the most valuable students of these trainings were women and girls.

Thanks to the tailoring training initiated with the support of IDRF Canada to support women who were separated from social and business life against their will, nearly 100 women were allowed to improve themselves in this profession. Women who receive carpet weaving training, as well as tailoring at the center, have the hope of being able to support their families and create a new workforce in the future.

Sohalia, one of the women who received tailoring training, said she learned a lot from the Community Center. She mentioned that after the vocational training, women could open a workshop in their homes and provide labor to their fellow citizens. She added that in this way, they can support their families financially.

Malali Karimi, one of the women who received carpet weaving training, stated that they learned carpet weaving with the vocational training support provided. She was pleased to have such an opportunity in Mazar-i Sharif, where they live. Adding that many families need to learn how to make money, Karimi said that they can earn an income by selling their products through tailoring and carpet weaving.

IBC, which never spares its support to women and girls to hold on to life, remembered the men who lost their jobs or had difficulty finding a job due to economic challenges. Saeed Abbas, who received carpentry training at the center, stated that only his father worked in his family, so he was happy that they could make money and support his family after the training he received at the center. 

It is aimed to directly benefit hundreds of people with the training to be given in the region where the Community Center is located. Now, more than ever, we rely on the support of our dear donors to extend assistance to those in need across various regions worldwide.
