Sadiqa established the Family Welfare Center for the Elimination of Violence against Women, a domestic violence prevention project that serves 14,000 Afghan women, trains government staff and encourages spiritual leaders to discuss women’s issues constructively. The Center has grown from its original student body of thirty-six girls to more than 3,400 girls in six schools, 200 women in four literary centers, and 120 students in college. Sadiqa also founded Afghan Women’s Leadership, as well as the first Afghan community college for women, and managed professional development centers for the Academy for Educational Development’s Higher Education Project in Afghanistan. Sadiqqa received the People’s Voice Award from the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation and was the Chicago Council on Global Affairs’ Patricia Blunt Koldyke Fellow in 2010. Currently, she is completing her master’s degree at the University of Ottawa in Canada.
