Dear SOLA friends --
Six months have passed and six months remain in 2020 -- the coming of July marks the halfway point of a year like none other.
As our co-founder and president Shabana Basij-Rasikh has said: "We aren't going to get back to normal. None of us are. Instead, we must choose to go forward towards normal." These words mark our path across the next weeks and months.
As some of you know, SOLA's school year, like many schools in Afghanistan, runs from March-December, and we have been actively transitioning to a fully virtual classroom experience. School is in session, and students are receiving assignments and communicating with their teachers from the safety of their homes.
The word "sola," in the Pashto language, means "peace." This word is our mission, this word is our goal -- and in 2020, this word is more meaningful than ever.
We wish you health, and sola, throughout this very different kind of summer.
