Math Help Wanted!

Help!

Are you a math nerd? We are looking for volunteer translators (English to Dari; English to Pashto) to help us translate short educational math resources.

We are also looking for educational materials in Dari, Pashto and English of relevance to Afghanistan on Fine Arts and Music.

Finally, can you help us find resources for the Life Skills section? This can include topics such as livelihoods, nutrition, childcare, hygiene, job hunting, business, computers, and specific skills areas. These can be materials in Dari, Pashto or English that are relevant for Afghanistan.

If you have some materials to share, or you can help translate in these specific subject areas, please contact us: info@darakhtdanesh.org
