Afghanistan Update for Sahar's Covid Effort

Dear Friend of Sahar,


Thank you for your on-going support of Sahar Education. Your generous contributions were especially important as we juggled the crisis with an on-going challenges of COVID-19.


In the months of July and August, schools were closed due to an uptick in COVID-19 cases. Schools reopened briefly for a short exam period. Since the Taliban takeover and due to the recent increase in security concerns across Afghanistan, we have made the difficult decision to halt  program operations and the construction of our boarding school indefinitely. We have continued to support our Afghan staff during this time. The safety of our staff is our priority.


We are actively developing plans to resume operations adjusting to the new reality, including assessing the feasibility of working on projects with partners in Afghanistan, prioritizing local organizations and grassroot initiatives.


Sahar believes in the future of Afghanistan and its people and we must support them now in every way possible. We have taken down our social media accounts to protect the women and girls we have served. Please visit our website and view our list of resources to learn how you can help.


Thank you for standing with us in support of Afghanistan and girls education.




Sahar, Executive Director
