Dear SOLA friends --
It's our favorite time of year: the month of March. While for many of us, March means an end to winter's darkness and the promise of warmer days, for schoolchildren in Afghanistan, March means something quite different; March means the first day of school.
At SOLA, we've just recently come to the end of our admissions season. We received 179 applications from 25 provinces. We conducted 74 interviews. We accepted 17 students.
These girls will be the members of our new 6th grade class, and will join our rising 7th graders, 8th graders, and 9th graders -- our first 9th grade class in our history.
Thank you for your continued support of our students and our mission. You truly are the reason we can do what we do, and this month there is an opportunity to double your impact: a generous donor is matching every dollar raised in March up to $25,000. We hope you'll join us in our matching challenge, and help us make 2019 our most memorable year yet.
In the Pashto language, the word "sola" means "peace." Thank you again, and sola.
