Province: Bamyan , Yakawlang
Nasrin who is 12th grade school student lives with nine members in her family. Two sisters and three brothers of Nasrin are students in school and the elder sister is at university. Her father is illiterate who works in their farm and her mother does the home tasks. Their family income is around 12,000 AFN in a month. Village they live is at North side of Baba Mountains which has a snowy and cold weather.
Nasrin was mostly worried about her future regarding her job career and university because it would cost a lot for her father to reach to the needs of all his children, she was hopeless that she would not be able to continue her studies because of low economic state they had.
It is about few months that Nasrin is one of the Mobile Repairing Training Center member which was established by LSO for learning mobile repairing methods. This Training Center is facilitated with the professional tools and experienced trainer. There are many new and used mobile tools that trainees can learn and use them for practice through guidance and help of the trainer. The most helpful thing for trainees was the practical works that they could learn a lot from and develop their confidence for planning of their own workshop.
The Training Center is so useful and effective for students so that they can learn and recognize damages and repairing of mobiles. This center become a shining hope for Nasrin to think of a self-made project for herself and her fellow ladies having a work shop to get income from and become first lady who can repair mobiles in her village.
“Any kind of vocational courses has its own followers and funs. Many vocational courses must be provided in different fields like this mobile workshop is, because it can help people to create a job field for themselves. But there will be an issue that providing tools will be difficult to start our own business for a person who belongs to a poor family but we will try our best.” Said Nasrin.
