"Once a health worker came to our village and gave us a presentation about how to have a clean environment. I kept looking at the way that lady spoke and I thought, gosh, I wish I could speak like that in front of a crowd as this. Well, God definitely heard me."
Parsan developed her confidence through the WEG trainings at PEP. She was always very enthusiastic about communicating with people, and her enthusiasm led her to become one of the great leaders of the Women's Empowerment Program. She takes charge with great courage and reaches out to the women who need counseling and motivation about education.
Working among the Women's Empowerment Group has affected Parsan's life in a very positive way. She has understood lots of problems that women face because of being uneducated. She has also realized that every problem does have a solution, and because of that Parsan is determined to help other ladies to understand that. She feels honored to be contributing in changing the thoughts of women about educating girls, and always wants to give them a challenge to win. She loves to see new WEG groups being formed and the enrollment of girls being increased day by day.
All these achievements give Parsan the hope that what she does for the women will never go in vain, and that a great harvest can be reaped through spreading the light of education.
Parsan believes that the WEG training helps women to understand how to live a healthy and an effective life for themselves and for their family. She works as the WEG Area Coordinator for her village and trains other women to become WEG facilitators for their communities.
