Tehmina, 17, partially covers her face with her scarf. She is taking classes at an educational centre set up in a private home in the Khairkhana neighbourhood of Kabul, the capital. The centre is known as General Work and Development Association (GWA), a local NGO. The Association offers a non-formal education programme for adolescent and other women who previously could not attend school, offering classes in basic writing and literacy, as well as vocational training in carpet-weaving, sewing, tailoring, embroidery and other skills. Tehmina's father works for the government but has not been paid for several months. - Shehzad Noorani (image by Rowan Watts)
