Memo to Trump and the SAS – send the Afghans fewer bullets and more books | Caroline Moorehead
A remarkable experiment under way in west Kabul is defying the threat of Isis to deliver radical education to hundreds of young Afghans. Its lessons are vitalIn the spring of 2002, I went to Afghanistan to write about the refugees returning home from Pakistan over the Khyber Pass after years of exile since the civil wars of the 80s and 90s. In the ruins of west Kabul I came across a teacher, who was with his 38 pupils, their parents and the looms on which they made carpets. They had all travelled back with him in the brightly painted buses laid on by the UN. His name was Aziz Royesh and he was a Hazara, from the third-largest of Afghanistan’s ethnic groups and unlike the other two, the Pashtun and the Tajik, Shia rather than Sunni. With money raised largely in the UK, Aziz found a derelict house, restored its rooms and set to work. It was the start of a remarkable experiment.

'Girls aren't less than boys': Kabul's female veterinarians hope to cure inequality | Fran McElhone
A trio of vets in Afghanistan are braving bomb blasts and discrimination to head up an animal welfare practice and inspire a new generation of womenUnpredictable and indiscriminate bomb blasts don’t deter the three women heading up Afghanistan’s only large-scale animal shelter and veterinary clinic, in Kabul. Neither do the attitudes of the people who told them they couldn’t, or shouldn’t, be vets.Afghanistan is one of the lowest-ranked countries in the world for gender equality. In this strictly patriarchal society, women are still traditionally married off soon after school age and remain housewives for the rest of their lives. They may face imprisonment for running away from home and many are still behind bars for “moral crimes”.

Nancy Hatch Dupree obituary
