The article features the volunteer network organization called Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan and its effort to empower Afghan women. It made specific reference to the experience of one of its member, Janis Rapchuk, on a three-week fact-finding mission to Kabul sponsored by the organization. Rapchuck discovered that library staff at Kabul Medical University act more like caretakers than librarians as well as the scarcity of materials and funding for library operations.
