KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN - APRIL 15: Afghan women learn how to make a doll at a workshop sponsored by a Malaysian NGO called Mercy that seeks to help local females to empower themselves on April 15, 2010 in Kandahar, Afghanistan. 80 women participate in every workshop despite rising tensions between an increasing Taliban presence in the city and the extensive NATO presence. Kandahar was rocked by two large suicide bombings on Thursday which killed three Afghan soldiers and wounded 26 others. NATO is becoming an increasing presence in the city as they prepare for an offensive against the Tailban in the summer. (Photo Majid Saeedi/Getty Images)
