Afghan-Canadian Community Center featured by Canadian Press

This week Colin Perkel, award-winning writer for the Canadian Press, profiles the teachers and students at the Afghan-Canadian Community Center in Kandahar and the challenges they face. The article has been carried by several other Canadian media outlets including Maclean’s, Canada’s pre-eminent current affairs magazine.

Foremost among those featured are the women students of the ACCC, whose strength of character persists amidst the most challenging of circumstances. As noted by Heena Tariq, one of those interviewed: “It’s not fair we are afraid and stay home. We have to be brave. We have to study for the future and brighten our lives.”
