"Girls education is the single highest returning social investment in the world today."

- Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan

Our Mission

Through education, we seek to empower young Afghan women who are committed to working for gender equality and improving life in Afghanistan. 

Noorjahan is the recipient of the Glamour Magazine 2013 outstanding college junior award. Newsweek and Forbes have likewise recognized her as one of the outstanding women in the world. In March 2012, she participated on a Women in the World Summit panel which was moderated by Chelsea Clinton and dealt with the use of digital technology and social networking as vehicles for positive change.

Monetary Donations are always our greatest need. We pay for books, insurance, travel and incidental needs for our 26 current students in the program.

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!
