Women are rarely seen in public life, and strict cultural norms are in place which pose severe restrictions on women’s mobility. Literacy rates are extremely low, with 8% of men literate, and only 0.6% of women. Uruzgan’s mountainous geography, ongoing insecurity and conservative culture presents an enormously challenging operating environment for development work.30/04/20145MB
