Educating girls is not a value; it’s an obligation we must fulfill within our home, our community, our city, our country and around the world. Humaira and her colleagues at Afghan Friends Network have changed the lives of women, girls and boys in the province of Ghazni.
After receiving a scholarship from AFN, Nageeba, graduated with honors from the teacher-training program in Kabul. Now she pays it forward by teaching at the school from which she graduated from.
Fahima received a scholarship in 2009. Now, she is a sought after nurse in her district. She earns more than her father and brothers put together. Her community shows their respect to her by calling her Dr. Fahima.
