Afghan Girls Superheroes
The Women’s Annex foundation and Film Annex provide Afghan students with the opportunity to create heroes by writing their stories and memories. They are introducing Afghan heroes as cartoon characters with the use of digital literacy and social media.
This project will help them become more creative, think more and have new experiences. Since Afghan schools do not provide such entertainment and educative programs for students, it will be a great chance for all the students to show their talents and gain more knowledge.
When we went to the schools in Herat, we saw how students are interested in this project. Most of them are familiar with American superheroes and like them. The project will provide them with an environment to write their thoughts, dreams and share them with the world.
