Everyone thinks. Thinking is part of our nature. But many of our thoughts, left to themselves, lack objectivity and are distorted or biased. They are not based on objective facts and are simply preconceived. The poor quality of our thoughts is a source of bias. It undergirds intolerance, racism, extremism and violence. We must systematically cultivate excellence in our manner of thinking.

From the blog
Here in Afghanistan, we often work with illiterate women. They were not allowed to go to school because women, according to the traditional patriarchal system supported by the Talibans, have no right to education. They role is to take care of the household and children. We had to develop appropriate learning methods, using pictures and ideograms, to enable these women, for example, learn to keep a cash book and calculate profit and loss. Feeling their joy when they found out they were capable of dealing with basic accountancy was really exciting.
