How Education Transforms People

I have watched a fascinating talk about education in Afghanistan (our neighboring country). Dr.Sakena Yacoobi is a wonderful woman who founded the Afghan Institute of Learning and teaches lots of girls and also men to give them the chance of better life. she is incredibly brave and I am impressed by her speech.

” That tells you that education transforms people. When you educate people, they are going to be different, and today all over, we need to work for gender equality. We cannot only train women but forget about the men, because the men are the real people who are giving women the hardest time.”
