Due to the recent developments in Afghanistan, there is an urgent need for educated/trained personnel in each and every governmental department in Afghanistan. Foreign NGOs, companies and local NGOs, etc. also need technical expert and educated staff especially in computer and English language. There is a golden opportunity for those who know computer and English language. For this reason thousands of young and old people rushes to the computer and English course to learn computer and English language in order to get job. There is also a tremendous need for female staff, especially those who knows English and computer.

But due to financial problems every one is not able to attend these courses. Taking this point in the view HAWCA’s English Language Center was established in the year 2003.

The significant achievement of this project is that a number of 193 students (women and girls) were able to have free access to English language classes, they were provided with all material such as books and cassettes etc. The students of the centre had also chance to increase their knowledge on several other issues, such as peace, human rights, general information, gender issues and so on.
