MISSION CAPSULES: Shumaila, a timid 16 year old from Afghanistan, dreamed of having the confidence to work in politics and guide the peaceful development of her country. One day, her school’s principal announced that a summer camp offering training on human rights, leadership and public speaking would be starting shortly. The camp supported by PWS&D lasted four days but changed Shumaila’s life forever. “I became confident and developed knowledge on politics and the rights of women and children,” she shares proudly. In a mock election, Shumaila was voted president – but she won more than just a title. “It was during the election campaign that I got the confidence required to deliver speeches in public. “With this support, Shumaila participates in school activities and voices her opinions at community events.
