Support an Afghan Girl's Year at School

Project Report | Jun 9, 2023
Admissions and end of the school year

By Teresa Bendzinski | Director of Annual Giving

Dear Friends,

June marks the end of SOLA's academic year at our campus in Rwanda. Our students are busy preparing for their final exams which begin this week. With the end of the year coming to end, that means SOLA's summer program will begin in just a few weeks!

Also, June 15th marks the last day of SOLA's admissions season. If you recall, SOLA launched admissions in March 2023 with the plan of accepting a new class of students in the fall. We have had an overhwelming response by Afghan families around the world. With less than a week to go, we've received more applications by far than any time in our history, it shows us and the world that the desire for Afghan families to educate their daughters has never been more urgent. It tells us that the need for SOLA is critical. It tells us, that Afghan girls deserve an education and we will do everything in our power to ensure they receive one.

Thank you for sticking by us and believing in the work we are doing. We are incredibly grateful for your support.

Teresa Bendzinski
