International Women's Day - Takhar

It was a wonderful day celebrating International Women’s Day all around Afghanistan this March. Relief International / Schools Online also offered its participants the opportunity to celebrate this day in the ILCs in Takhar Province, Kabul and Jalalabad Provinces.
The Takhar ILC celebrated this day with all its members and community participants drawing excitement and interest from all, particularly the female participants. Some of the ILC female members participated in a drawing competition held especially for Women’s Day in Afghanistan. They drew beautiful and poignant pictures of Afghan women in a variety of situations to show their love, understanding and sometimes sympathy to their mothers and other women.
