Afghan girls help create unique storybook

At HTAC model schools, Afghan children are given opportunities to show their talent, creativity, opinions and feelings.  Earlier this year, 13 students at Rokhshana Girls School in Kabul, Afghanistan participated in a special creative writing project where they wrote essays and short stories about one of Afghanistan's endangered species - the snow leopard.

The project was part of a collaborative effort between HTAC and one of our partners, Dot-to-Dot Children's Books, a non-profit publishing company, whose writing team took these essays and created a unique, illustrated children's book called "The Snow Leopard Dream". 

These young Afghan girls who helped author the book are prominently featured in the book as role models for generations of youth around the world as well as HTAC founder, Suraya Sadeed.
