Challenge

Due to civil strife in Afghanistan, educational systems for Afghan women have been destroyed. In September 2002, Gawhar Shad University opened in Pakistan to respond to the lack of post-secondary educational opportunities for Afghan women who are high school graduates. Students come from Kabul, Herat, and other cities in Afghanistan.

Solution

Creating Hope and the Afghan Institute of Learning are expanding University curriculum for Afghan women, and post-secondary courses to train teachers and health care workers.

Long-Term Impact

Afghans with skills in Computers and Math are needed to help rebuild the country. Graduates of these programs will be able to work in these fields.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
