Description

Our purpose is to alleviate conditions of poverty in Afghanistan through programs that advance education and educational opportunities for women in Afghanistan and their families; and to educate and increase the understanding of Canadians about human rights in Afghanistan. When we see a small barefoot girl in a crumbling classroom who comes from a family where no one can read or write, we don’t see a victim. We see a child poised to fight for her right to be there and burning for change. And if she gets a hand up: the tools to learn and the guidance of trained, passionate teachers – if she is aware that even outsiders are prepared to defend her right to be there – she will prove to be everything the Taliban fear: a defiant, smart, imaginative, and even revolutionary, leader.
