Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Early Marriage Prevention Initiative

Due to early and arranged marriages in Afghanistan, the drop-out rate for young women soars as students reach adolescence. Working with schools and community leaders in Northern Afghanistan, we offer leadership classes to educate and empower young Afghan women regarding their rights to postpone marriage, stay in school, and work towards a successful future.
