We believe that education is the key to gender, economic and social equality in Afghanistan. 

We take a two pronged approach to our mission of promoting equality in Afghanistan through education. First, we help secure scholarships and provide financial, emotional and academic support to the brightest young Afghans seeking a U.S. college education. Second, we support student-led projects in Afghanistan designed to improve the life of the Afghan people.

Fatima's Story

Monetary Donations are always our greatest need. We pay for books, insurance, travel and incidental needs for our scholars.

In-Kind Donations of medical, dental, tutoring and professional services are always appreciated. Donations of computers, tablets, smart phones and frequent flier miles can also help to off-set expenses.

Hosting a Student is another way to help. We welcome host families who can provide a wonderful second home for our students during school breaks. Our host families also provide supplemental financial support during the year while their student is at school. Host families gain as much from this relationship as the student!
