it wasn't the tough mushers of sled dog racing who set the trail ablaze but a nun and for all friends who brought their idea to life. five years ago. bill to dog kennel in the village kids from the local open age came around to take care of the dogs and one day they state their life might seem extreme to some the boys wake up at six to feed the dogs before school in the evening they spend up to three hours training their full legged friends but smother perske have also encourages her kids to become dab hands on the computer and internet the boys regularly update their websites and they're in touch with their busy mother twenty four seven on the phone itself but children are the most important thing my only interests not play any rule any more and regardless of whether parsky has huskies window race or not she hopes the competition will take place in the village next year. but called
these dogs and the children it really is not the weaning but truly just the taking part that counts. thank you thank you. we see. many. afghan wives who have been beaten who want to leave their abusive husband but there is one story that was the worst story which is a girl who had been sold off by her family and she was beaten by the older man who she was forced to marry and she tried to escape and they caught her and brought her back and because she had tried to escape she had to be punished her
husband then cut off and cut off her nose. their reason is that it's a big example for other. marc hauser. i'll tell you a story of a young woman i met i find inspiring i'm not going to promise a happy outcome but at least it was an inspiring story she was a young woman who was forced into marriage in a very conservative part of the country in the south east she was forced into marriage at the age of around thirteen and from somewhere she was getting a lot of abuse in this home and she was very unhappy and she found it in himself to run away which when you're coming from an area of the country where women are not seen on the streets alone imagine a girl she was now fourteen or fifteen making her way from the southeast of the country away to a couple and then she found shelter and she was lucky. that she then found that had
husband's family rose up against a they called upon a lot of the tribal elders in that area they were furious they felt like she brought shame upon her they got the support of parliament they got the support of the minister of interior is an indication of quite how conservative those views are even in the heart of government and in the end this girl faced the president's office the minister of interior parliamentarians and they said to you must go home you brought shame on it and she said no if you send me back to that village there is not one that will hear my death cries kill me here kill me now i'd rather that than go back to this village so defiance was extraordinary this courage and a girl so young they ventured to the government back down and they let her stay in the safe house she's getting an education she's much happier now she may someday soon get a divorce she's been trying for several years to get a separation. and so although i can't claim that she's yet happy she's still having to be very much protected because the husband's family frankly still want to kill her or at least take her back and there she might be
a real risk but she is trying to forge a life. poorer families can't afford to have. girl children who can't work in the fields so there is. a tremendous economic push to marry your daughter off at a very very young age sometimes as young as ten or whatever or that america is going for certain target or they're using graphics beneath these drugs as materials so. they have to so the. i was ten years old to believe parents made larry enough gunmen knowing twenty two
this man and his family were knowingly ber's he promised my father to be money one of my children's father is my brother and my husband doesn't know it we have been about to go home or she her car children. her brother to her. to marry me marry me automatically my fifteen bartow to marry my one year small but otherwise he will kill you. how can she. get marya work or why you hold with the kid this practice called bad which is the use of women and girls as compensation crimes so what you sometimes see happening if has been for instance of rape or a mad. they'll be a traditional council gathering about this and one of the ways that they can try to resolve faiths is rather than. punishing the perpetrator of the rape or the murder
they'll take a girl from one family the perpetrators family and they'll give that girl usually in marriage to the victim's family. and i hold until both of them well you see how difficult it is to obtain justice because you are a woman it hurts you because you know that you can do anything to change the situation if you will and this is because society is in the hands of men and maddow has someone who at this point the concept of justice is still nonexistent in court . it's very hard for women particularly conservative areas of the country to seek help and sadly if a young girl or a woman goes to the police complaining about something like to master violence or ready for a forced marriage. being met with a lot of hostility sometimes she can be ostracized by society that basically thinks
the problem should be kept in the home and we also sometimes see women. until recently a woman could be knocked out for having been rapes even the woman when they get raped they go to the gym and is that to lessen the a widespread damage to their to their close in afghanistan or. really where are the rights of women are protected they want to sister and what are they were managed to run away because of domestic violence they were not about to continue with that. kind of terrible lives they bought their way home and then been there as men drafted their husband traffic and then. they stopped but we. didn't realize that but up there mark bannerman and that in turn their back to their village. for they did try and give them an organization or they hadn't turned into
a park and at the moment affairs which is a sponsor about that they get up to. maybe two and then back you go well and they're well with a warlock with a powerful. come monday or stay. or give them the hands of their husband. on the public place. each up to. forty five. at a public place in front of all the relatives. and you stop them work fine. six to six thousand dollars. you took he put your husband probably because. you put shame on the village and on the family name so they have to enable their ballots and pay the fine. punished by their. killing a woman that might use it for the war loss like killing a birth. we are out of your point where the concept of justice is still nonexistent
. today we have jungle law if this constitutionalist benefit photo was lost they put that practice otherwise they look like a waste of paper same we have in our constitutional. freedom of speech even in the mission house we didn't have and we don't have freedom of speech element to part of them obviously we have been of our constitutional freedom for press more than four times to be that your analysis inside of the parliament. in itself proves the lies. which is sort of an equal as that were in the beginning of parliament most of this parliament did end making amnesty criminal focus themselves not because you had to look at once there was a discussion about the sentence of a woman who was to be stoned to death. being the shari'a judge he didn't want to contemplate the woman could be at least symbolically stoned in the square not being
hit but still insulted because he was told that it was still a crime in any case at a certain point was the response was well it should be hit with pebbles same biota so i don't know. get will be. charitable. number on the phone for example if women do not obey islamic law and aware strange clothes and go out seducing poor young people who had much room to boom misha especially those who don't have the possibility of getting married some of the things he know that are in our opinion this is not the right behavior no more pick a new theme now we have you defy the laws which apparently are up to protect women's rights so bad and stand there and push up those laws are and the hand-off the warlocks and the hand of the people watch something and there was a shot of the power so we need to change democrats and we need to change death point of view is lost on the strike but still. don't.
wish to their. list of rights was the constitution of our group has done is given for them because to we do not will fly in afghanistan has been that law is not implemented properly we have a lot of war lords war could have been else we have organized criminals we have a lot of illegal own groups they are the main causes influences all of our views in that woman writes in after i missed.
here but islam does prevent some things for women women cannot sit in the middle of an assembly of men. furthermore women are obliged to wear the huge job. or if they cover themselves there aren't any problems. lastly women are not allowed to become judges. much of. the religion of islam doesn't allow women to undertake a role in which you have to give a judgments. it is these laws are respected so there aren't any problems.
only. it's the community that the rights that we are struggling with that today is anything to copy that's not practice that's all. be able to have well in afghanistan the majority of women are married below the legal age of sixteen and they don't have a right to a divorce they have the right to what's called a separation it's really hard for them to get there is a man just needs to say divorce three times and that's it he says he said divorce from his wife to run only of one before now another afghan woman asking for divorce was never even heard of that we are going to follow along i want to be out through our days the women come to us to ask us to resolve marital issues. sometimes we succeed sometimes we do not. point
a couple gets divorced but we don't want anything to do with those women for women it's a long hard struggle to get a separation and one of the major obstacles that she finds this it and she doesn't necessarily get access to her children this isn't the command of the police. ask some information about nutrition that arrive to these people. around forty percent which burnt area and two to five years but you have suspected for self-immolation and just the right. percentage or the name or documentary fight.
in malaysia. i mean. who. unfortunately. there is. no. young woman. chosen what happened what has happened to you my husband often beats me when we argue he who was that my husband. my husband what did you do or did he beat you yes. yes. every time that we are here every day yes it's unclear how many of these cases might actually have been killings or attacks by men that are dressed up as it were suicide it's this very rarely
investigations certainly rarely criminal investigations after these cases take place the main problem in afghanistan. because of the economy condition of some people. who are. too old to the. economy. may come. between the husband and wife and sometimes the other is not a thief. or a problem then there were men who are on the border and groups of militia you will hear people in the obama administration talking about how much they care about the women of afghanistan it's not true they don't care about the women of afghanistan that a they open office is it would have can see it isn't spend lots of money to learn the media they think of the literally billions of dollars that have been spent by
the u.s. in that country on my lap or a fifty billion dollars in economic aid has been spent on the reconstruction of the economic infrastructure and social fabric in afghanistan isn't. if there are sixty countries from the international community who manage them. my skin is where is all this money go and where has all of the help that was supposed to be going to women but the real problem is that no one in fast and afghan provinces in order to improve women situation there very often money returns to external advice or me. to external free. that's always coming from abroad that are very very small percentage of the total u.s. money for afghanistan is going to the women who do this you have to add also the role of international cooperation there is a study by oxfam from about two years ago that said that all of the money meant for
reconstruction forty percent of it returns to sender through the expenses for personality. and most of the money ends up in the pockets of those who sent the money in the first place. this is upsetting for us because this money comes from people who live in foreign countries money that these people who worked hard to earn and they have given money to their governments with a move helping poor countries. capacity building group ability for the local population like the one the punji a foundation built for its we who then ran the project rather than forgot about it i think our lady of its shows that that many spent and shark camps project money. out of the country copy and paste it to the country with no sustainability no impact as much had expected they have to be careful about the afghans that they
support you know are they afghans that really have the ability to be social changes or are they high. we western allies. who merely were in geo welcome to other thank you for example there was a basher doest who was the minister of planning during the first karzai administration that really got a guy in and then she became a member of parliament but he didn't talk about it i mean that it down and a man who was much loved by the afghan population. as planning minister he conducted resends us of the local nongovernmental organizations that would result in afghanistan since two thousand and one. opinion a lot of the twenty eight hundred nongovernmental organizations including the census doest recommend the removal of one thousand nine hundred of them to president karzai so they must feel cooperation is a tangible problem in afghanistan and you know that and i think there aren't any
control mechanisms for how money is invested inside the country. by your homeys i want them to understand how the money that they give to their governments is used. well money that they expect to be used in the right way without wish it was a cavalier early money that arrives then passes through the government manages the reconstruction work. and the work of the local nongovernmental organizations so it is clear that if the majority of the government is made up of the corrupted wool or it's where the money will end up in their pockets on their little about the international community has encouraged their corruption that effect our country today. hard to believe. that after spending you know. hundreds of billion dollars and.
the war in the world for the rights of the children. afghanistan is. the second country. down put there for the power to afghanistan is the highest and the war of maternal mortality that each fifteen minutes one woman dies from in my turn maternity because of lack of access to the clinic what a lot of money has arrived in afghanistan to improve the situation of women but i don't think it has brought many improvements. expectation that to be the suspect it has at them it has a human i'm not cussing that has a separate classes or subhuman so that's all right but we need and what we fight for the. welfare of those of us.
parents versus social workers duckett nabby pm last stop get any nearer than that kidnapping children have become prizes to fight full why does the loss threaten families the social voted to see me in the form of they have a right of will hold many more faith in what they have any kind of for suspicion about the world more food of your children are often a just better at bringing up kids than their own mom and dad. from what we have an
