    Descriptive info: The position of Education in Afganistan-2010.. Illiteracy runs rampant in Afghanistan with some 90% of rural women unable to read or write at a functional level.. A similar problem also exists for many of the men in rural and semi-urban areas.. Only 24 per cent of Afghans above the age of 15 can read and write, with much lower literacy rates among women and nomadic populations.. Many schools are in a dilapidated state: maintenance, repairs and painting.. are.. seldom accepted by the Ministry of Education as their responsibility.. Few schools have surrounding walls.. That has a particularly strong impact on the enrolment of girls, as parents often want them to study in a more hygienic, protective, and sheltered area.. In many conservative parts of the country parents will not send their girls to school unless there are women teachers.. There are schools, but it takes a strong father to send his daughter to class.. Afghanistan needs people to fight against the tradition that girls stay at  ...   an Afghan doctor no less, that a trained midwife in Kabul prefers to be unemployed and without a job rather than go to a rural area!.. Most midwives are urban based.. The same can be so often said for female teachers!.. “If women are not part of decision-making, decisions will be made by men who do not understand women's problems, and those men will never address these problems.. (Dr.. Sima Samar: Chairperson of Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission and Human Rights advocate.. 28.. 3.. 07.. …………….. Investment in Vocational training is essential.. Training in a trade produces a skill for life.. It is hands as well as brains that will help to re-build Afghanistan.. Over the years it has been Afghan hands that have helped to build and construct hospitals, schools, dig canals and wells and cultivate fields, a fact which is not always recognised.. Afghan brains have helped to propose appropriate projects for their people.. However, much of.. this still has to be carefully funded..

    Descriptive info: Afghan Women, Midwives, and High Infant Mortality.. I believe that if the life of only one person is changed or saved, something wonderful and monumental has been achieved and all efforts justified.. Please be assured that we are very proud to have had a small association with the projects.. Donor to a SAFE TBA Training Project).. TBA/CHW Instructor’s Comments - Dec.. 2009.. “An extraordinary change has been brought to the illiterate women whom started from zero and had no knowledge about health and hygiene issues at all.. Now they have confidence and know about both children and motherly health issues.. The ability of the trained trainees in order to help pregnant women during their pregnancy and after the delivery can be considered as a vital asset to these remote villagers.. As far as our training program has followed, the two objectives of the TBA program are related directly to the child and mother, and also public health awareness issues.. According to my observation, there are a lot of changes being made within the community and households so far.. ~Why SAFE’s funding of TBA/CHW Training has been so vitally important~.. v.. Afghanistan has the second highest maternal mortality rate in the world; one woman dies every 27 minutes due to pregnancy-related conditions – around 25,000 deaths per annum.. The country has the highest mortality rate in the world.. for infants and children under 5yrs old.. Midwives:.. It has been stated in Afghanistan, by an Afghan doctor no less, that trained midwives in Kabul prefer to be unemployed and without a job rather than go to a rural area: a fact confirmed by the Act.. Minister of Health H.. E.. Soraya Dalil on 3.. rd.. November 2010!.. Most trained midwives are urban based.. The same can be so often said for female teachers! Unfortunately.. there  ...   project that the women are involved.. We all know that the women can help each other and bring a positive and fundamental change to a family.. Thank God! Now our families have the opportunity to access to a (DAYA) health worker to have a safe delivery and bring health improvement to our society.. Dr.. Soraya Rahim Sobhrang, who received the 2010 Front Line Award for Human Rights Defenders at Risk.. She is the Commissioner responsible for Women's Rights at the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission - pictured with T.. O'Malley-Chairman -SAFE.. The maternal mortality rate.. that is 60 times higher than that of developed countries!.. Maternal mortality rates in rural areas are more than 10 times higher than those in Kabul.. In rural areas particularly,.. giving birth can be a forecast of death.. !.. The high maternal mortality of Afghan women.. –.. can have many causes, including limited availability and accessibility of health services, poor health, including anaemia from chronic malnutrition and infectious diseases, many of the latter are preventable.. Lack of resources.. and trained medical personnel, along with low levels of awareness and cultural factors, are the main reasons for alarming figures.. Trained midwives.. are rarely in attendance.. If there are complications, it might take hours, even days to reach the nearest clinic.. Malnutrition.. –.. is widespread in Afghanistan, particularly in rural areas.. Many districts do not have a clinic: those that do so are often found to be basic.. Life expectancy.. – 44 years, one of lowest in the world, some 20 years short of global average; women in Afghanistan die at a younger age than men.. Safe motherhood.. benefits women.. It also benefits their families, the community, and society.. It is an essential component of development.. There's an Afghan saying: 'When the mother dies, the child is sure to die'..

    Descriptive info: GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION:.. Afghanistan is located in Central Asia, bordering Iran on the west, China on the northeast, and Pakistan on the east and south.. Afghanistan's northern neighbours are Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.. Northern Afghanistan is linked ethnically to Central Asia.. Afghanistan sits uneasily between the Arab world, Iran, Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent.. Politically, economically, ethnically and culturally, it has strong links with each of these but retains its own identity as a rugged remote mountainous desert, interspersed by lush river valleys and oases..

' to save the file to a location on your computer.. Download Map:.. Adobe Acrobat Reader.. (download here).. is required to view this file.. RECENT HISTORY:.. Contrary to general opinion,.. female literacy in Afghanistan was never high.. Before the 1979 Soviet invasion, only 1% of women graduated from high school.. It is thought that everything was perfect before the advent of the Taliban, but education was generally only for the privileged and elite.. Modern.. women, as well as having contended with laws passed by the Taliban, have still to contend with age-old prejudices.. Their lives have shown only marginal improvement and further progress is continually threatened by those same ethnic and principally male dominated age-old prejudices.. In the rural countryside, where approx.. 90% of Afghan women live, life remains much the same, and these same women are unable to read or write at a functional level!.. Afghans.. suffer from one of the lowest life expectancies in the world.. , lack of adequate healthcare facilities, an educational system that was almost non-existent (but very slowly recovering since 2002), and recovery from the destruction of almost the entire infrastructure of the country.. Due.. to a prolonged drought, the worst in living memory, now happily over, farmers suffered repeated crop failure and the loss of most of their livestock.. Unfortunately devastating rainfall producing flash floods and landslides often follows drought.. Many do not have the resources to rebuild their livestock herds.. Others include those without land and individuals who got heavily into debt during the drought.. Unfortunately a successful poppy crop can alleviate many debt situations!.. Education,.. in all its shapes, for the whole society, is a dire need.. However, it must be done in a proper way.. There must be the necessary consultation, guidance, and support to emerging Educational Departments in the provinces and particularly to those in authority in Kabul.. There must also be a necessary respect for Islam and the regional and ethnic cultures and customs within the country.. Sensitivity.. , understanding, and genuine long-term commitment must be the watchwords for those countries and agencies wishing to help.. Above all they must avoid paternalism, patronising attitudes, ignorance and arrogance.. But, it is important not to rush.. Afghans need to digest all inputs.. It is their country and it is they who will re-build it, albeit with obligatory assistance from the West.. The path ahead will not be easy and will be strewn with difficulties.. May Allah hold the people of Afghanistan in the palm of his hand.. MINERALS.. Afghanistan boasts a long tectonic history and one of the most complex geologies in the world..

There is an extremely acute shortage of trained surgeons.. Mines, Uxo,.. Mine Injuries:.. There are an estimated 10 million live mines still buried in Afghanistan!.. Children are particularly vulnerable to becoming land mine casualties as they fetch water; collect firewood, herd animals or even walk to school.. c.. Mines triggered by foot pressure seldom harm just legs.. Debris being driven into exposed tissue by the blast.. The further the debris is pushed, the higher the surgeons must amputate!.. Widows:.. There are an estimated 700, 000 war widows in Afghanistan.. Currently between 1% and 5% of all households appear to have no adult male above the age of 15..

Being a fully qualified Gynaecologist and Obstetrician (Kabul Medical Faculty), Dr.. Soraya fully endorsed and praised SAFE’s involvement in training 48 women as TBA/CHWs in the rural areas of Bamyan and Wardak provinces.. She also praised the comprehensiveness of the training courses, and fully endorsed the necessity of follow-up refresher courses, (this was good news for SAFE to hear).. Regrettably she confirmed that qualified midwives in Kabul and other major urban centres are extremely reluctant and even decline employment to travel to the rural areas in response to the needs of the rural women.. 6.. 2010 October: 1-month Refresher Course for the 27 women trained as TBAs/CHWs in 2009.. In conversation with the ladies SAFE was told that the initial training course last year had made a huge difference to them..

The following is an extract from an MoPH release, published on 5.. December!.. “In Afghanistan's villages, TBA/CHWs are the first line health care providers before one reaches the nearest health facility.. Nominated from local communities, these men and women know the people, the local culture and the issues at stake in the community, including but not limited to those pertaining to health.. If we are to see Afghanistan's public health system stand on its own two feet, we have to develop a system that can sustain the interest and commitment of the community health workers who are, in fact, volunteers,.. “TBAs/CHWs are the backbone of the primary health care system in Afghanistan and are even working in parts of the country not reached by basic health services.. Her Excellency Dr Suraya Dalil, Acting Minister of Public Health - 5.. December 2010!.. SAFE’s aims for 2011.. A Micro-Hydro Project to serve..
