Provide Computer Instruction for 120 Afghan Girls
 
In August 2015 Sahar opened a new computer center at a high school for Afghan girls. Sahar's computer centers are very popular. This microproject will pay for one month of instruction and internet access for 120 girls. The skills the girls learn will make them eligible for more types of employment, and enable them to learn about, and connect with the world outside Afghanistan. So far generous Global Giving donors have funded 5 months! Help us fund another.
Thirty Rural Afghan Girls to Teacher Training
 
This microproject provides transportation of young women, ages 17 to 24, in rural Afghanistan to a Teacher Training Center, at a cost of $1 per day per student. The two-year program has a strong emphasis on teaching math, science and health. Help teach the teachers! Our goal is 1 month for 30 students. So far, GG donors have funded 19 months. An unrestricted donation to the parent project, shown at the right, gets a 50% match from the Safer World Fund!
Provide a Computer for Afghan GIrls
 
The computer center at our new girls' school in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan still needs more computers. The center is available to the 5,000+ girls who attend the school. The center and its internet connection are extremely popular. They enable the girls to research, connect, and learn of the world outside Afghanistan. So far, GlobalGiving donors have funded 30 computers! Want a 50% match from the Safer World Fund? Consider instead an unrestricted donation to the parent project, shown at right.
Books for Afghan Girls School

Don't let shattered glass shatter girls' education
 
On November 10 a suicide bomber attacked the German consulate in Mazar-i-Sharif, Afghanistan. The blast was so strong that it blew out all of the windows in Sahar's model girls' school, one kilometer away. The purpose of this microproject is to help raise the estimated $10,000 of the $18,750 needed to replace all of the windows with blast-resistant glass. Help show the 3,000+ girls and the people of Mazar-i-Sharif that we continue to support their education despite heightened security issues. project reportread updates from the field
