Summary

This project will help victims of terrorist attacks and vulnerable populations displaced by the rapid advancement of the Taliban. Following recent school terror attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan, we will provide cash assistance to the families of victims, scholarships to students, and help schools resume operations. We have expanded the project to support the internally displaced, particularly women, and refugees in neighboring countries with cash assistance for food, shelter and basic necessities.

Challenge

Recent months have seen an increase in genocidal attacks against Hazaras paralleled by Taliban advancement causing tens of thousands to flee their homes. Attacks on Hazara educational centers have left nearly 200 people dead, including the attack on Sayed Ul-Shuhada school that killed more than 85 girls. There is an ongoing humanitarian crisis due the rapid Taliban advancement that culminated with the fall of the Afghan government.

Solution

The Foundation in collaboration with grassroots organizations and community leaders will provide cash assistance to student victims and their families, scholarships to the affected students, and funding to targeted schools to help them resume operations. In addition, this project will provide cash assistance to the internally displaced people in Afghanistan, particularly displaced unmarried women who are at risk of forced marriage to Taliban fighters, and refugees in neighboring countries.

Long-Term Impact

This project will address the urgent needs of Hazaras, who are directly targeted by the Taliban and other terrorist groups on the basis of their ethnicity and religion. At a time of increasing instability and uncertainty, this project will help the at-risk youth, particularly girls, to have access to education and that internally displaced people, refugees and women fleeing the Taliban have access to basic necessities to support their survival and resilience.
