Our New Name Celebrates a New Day in Afghanistan

By Ginna Brelsford | Executive Director

Ayni Education International is celebrating a new day in Afghanistan by changing its name to Sahar Education. Sahar means “dawn” in Dari, the most common language spoken in the area we serve in Northern Afghanistan. Our leadership team and our Afghan advisors all agree—this is a new day for girls in Afghanistan.

The historic, peaceful transition to a new government under a coalition led by President Ashraf Ghani and Prime Minister Abdullah Abdullah is poised to bring stability to Afghanistan as coalition forces continue to withdraw. Yet many challenges remain. That’s why Sahar will continue to provide education for Afghan girls—building schools, creating computer centers, and supporting teacher training—while always seeking opportunities to meet the challenges presented as great change is undertaken. Please continue to support our work at this critical juncture in Afghanistan’s history.
