How our Educate All initiative has empowered one Afghan woman

Since launching our Educate All initiative, in partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), we’ve seen some incredible cases of how far our mission to democratize learning has reached. Our free, globally sourced library has continued to grow into hundreds of high-quality, impactful courseware and has enabled access to this valuable content in unique and incredible ways.

Madina Walizada completes SC Training (formerly EdApp) course for female empowerment

One such example is how Madina Walizada completed SC Training (formerly EdApp) courseware on female empowerment to help drive change in her hometown of Kabul, Afghanistan. Ms Walizada was recently interviewed by the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) about how, despite everything going on in Afghanistan, she’s able to take a female empowerment course on her mobile device created right here on our amazing platform.

SC Training (formerly EdApp)'s free course inspired Walizada to become a successful entrepreneur and provide jobs for other Afghan women

In the interview, Ms Walizada expressed her interest in taking the free course: to become a successful young female entrepreneur to provide more jobs for other women and girls in Afghanistan.

Ms Walizada expressed, “SC Training (formerly EdApp) was really amazing for me. It was really easily accessible and when I had free time, I just opened my phone and accessed my SC Training (formerly EdApp) lessons from there.”

In fact, Ms Walizada completed her microlessons from the back of a taxi cab whilst sitting in Kabul traffic. She also shared her thoughts on using our platform, noting how clear it was for her to grasp the concepts as well as interact with the lessons through helpful accompanying images and varying learning structures.
