Who We Are

The Initiative to Educate Afghan Women is a four year education and leadership development program working to create the next generation of women leaders in Afghanistan.  We partner with leading US colleges and universities to deliver undergraduate degrees, as well as provide training and guidance for graduates helping other Afghan women assume leadership roles in their homeland.

Established in 2003 as a grassroots non-profit organization, we are solely funded by private donations from individuals and grants.  Our mission and proven program demonstrate the power an educated woman can and will use to create meaningful and lasting change in Afghanistan.
