Imagine if you had to face cultural prejudice and threats against your life just for the opportunity to go to school. Would you still try to get an education? Girls all over Afghanistan have decided the risk is worth it, and are driving a new culture of learning in their nation.
This video by NATO highlights some of the challenges girls must face as they obtain an education which will one day allow them to contribute to their country’s progression towards independence and security.
Right now, GreaterGood and the Hunger Site are partnering together to make a big difference in the lives of Afghan girls at the Mirwais Mena School. We are committed to ensuring these girls stay in school and remain safe from extremist attacks. There are two buses available for purchase, and with your help, we can buy them for Mirwais Mena School.
