This was a great chance for me to talk to girls and learn how to wear the head scarf correctly and just find out what they like here in Kabul. It is an eye opener since most of these girls have no options once they graduate. A few may get further scholarships to study in schools in India or Kabul, but without extended families to help them, the likelihood that a girl will live on her own are almost nil. The lucky girls may have an uncle who will find them an arranged marriage or they could get employment in the home of a wealthy Afghani. Either way, they don't have the power over their futures I wish all women in the world deserve. Hopefully, the obvious friendship and support they have for each other will help sustain them and a few of them will have a bright future.
