MISSION CAPSULES: Zahida is an accomplished teacher at a high school in Afghanistan, where not long ago cultural norms forced her to abandon her dream of teaching. After graduating, she pursued a teaching career and got married shortly thereafter. While her husband initially supported her choice to work, he soon worried what his friends and family would think about her career and Zahida was forced to quit. Thankfully a PWS&D program working to change cultural attitudes and raise awareness about the importance of education interceded. After explaining to Zahida's family about how important her work is, Zahida was able to return to the school. "Teaching is not just a job for me, but it is my dream to help children learn. Through the support of this project, I am once again living my dream," she shares. PWS&D supports women's empowerment.
