More and more Afghan women and girls are graduating from high school and going on to university to become teachers, engineers, doctors, administrators and more. Many are from poor families. The Afghan Institute of Learning identified 10 university and 10 high school students who need scholarships. The scholarships will contribute to the costs of tuition, transportation, books and supplies so that these women and girls can continue their education.

Afghanistan is one of the world's most challenging places to be a female. Women and girls are the most marginalized and vulnerable and have the lowest literacy rate. There are not enough public schools for girls and private schools are often too expensive. High school graduates often cannot meet the financial challenges of university education. Because of increasing security issues, women and girls must have safe transportation to attend school. Without education, they cannot find good jobs.


This project will provide scholarships for 20 poor Afghan female students. Ten will be able attend high school and 10 a university for a year. The scholarships will assist the women and girls to cover costs for tuition, transportation, or books and supplies. High school students will graduate. University students can learn about Economics, Law, Science, Psychology, Business Administration, and Management. All students will be better able to find a job and help their families.
