  1. Three weeks in Afghanistan

    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.
  2. Malala Yousafzai : Youth Wins Nobel Peace Prize

    On July 12, 2013, in New York, before the Youth Assembly of the United Nations, Malala said: "The Taliban thought a bullet could silence us but they failed ... Let us take our notebooks and our pencils. These are our most powerful weapons ... I want education for the sons and daughters of the Taliban and all extremists and terrorists.” Before concluding, she added that, "I do not even have to hate the Taliban who shot me." She was treated to a standing ovation from a rapt audience. The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif congratulated Malala, saying she was the pride of Pakistan. He said: "She fills her countrymen with pride, her achievement is unmatched.”
