MISSION CAPSULES: “Neither the students nor I were actually enjoying the lessons.” Inayatullah, a teacher at Zangue Girls School in Afghanistan, knew his lecture-based teaching style was ineffective. Since attending teacher-training workshops run by PWS&D partners, Inayatullah has learned to bring life to his lessons. After implementing more practical teaching methods, Inayatullah’s pupils are engaging in group activities, participating in lively discussions and better learning their lessons. With a greater sense of ownership over their education, they are gaining confidence, asking questions and voicing their opinions. By improving the quality of education, PWS&D is helping more children enjoy their studies and become leaders in their communities. “This is a tremendous achievement for both and students and me.” Inayatullah says with a smile.

They will extend until Monday or Tuesday. Glenview is looking for options for them, as it could be two or three months before they can be back in the building. Glenview have funds to cover any material needs but are looking for a place for them to live, if necessary, until they can move back or find another permanent residence.
