Kabul Beauty School
by Deborah Rodriguez was a nice read. She's not the best writer in the world, she's a beautician actually, but what she did (and continues to do) for a number of women in Afghanistan is really impressive. By starting a beauty school that not only trained Afghani women to cut hair and do beauty treatments, but also training a number of the graduates to be teachers at the school, she helped create sustainable livelihoods for women in the capital city. Remarkable.
