International Women’s Day: A story worth reading | Asifa from Afghanistan, an example of strength


International Women’s Day

A story worth reading | Asifa from Afghanistan, an example of strength in the tribute of UNICEF Europe and Central Asia for the International Women’s Day.

The 27-year-old Asifa is a former beneficiary of the “Child and Family Support Hubs” program implemented by SolidarityNow and a current employee at the organization.

The story of Asifa unfolds while talking to Zoi Triantafyllidou, SolidarityNow’s Roving Female Friendly Space Facilitator. We keep what Zoi saw in Asifa from the beginning and Asifa confirmed it: “Asifa had the sparkle to enhance her life and we were there to encourage and support her”.
