Dear SOLA friends:
Summer's end means the beginning of admissions season at SOLA: as you read these words, we are heading out across Kabul and into the provinces of Afghanistan, in search of the girls who will join more than 70 classmates on our campus as the members of our incoming 6th grade class in 2020.
These are kinetic times in Afghanistan, and it is no exaggeration to say that 2019 may prove to be one of the most transformative years in the nation's recent history.
The terrible violence that overshadowed August's celebrations of 100 years of Afghan independence is a dark reality. Equally real, though, is our unshakable commitment to providing our students -- both today's and tomorrow's -- with a safe, secure, and nurturing environment in which to grow into the women who will change the world.
The need for a school like SOLA and the mission we pursue is perhaps more immediate than it has ever been, and it is thanks to you that we are able to do what we do. As you may know, "sola" is the Pashto word for "peace"; on behalf of all of us, I wish you sola, today and tomorrow.
