Whom We Serve

The Initiative To Educate Afghan Women makes a difference by advancing young women of extraordinary academic performance and demonstrated dedication to public service, who are willing and able to return to Afghanistan each summer and after completion of their four-year undergraduate education. The women of The Initiative wish to become part of a strong network of educated women in Afghanistan helping other women and working for positive change in the development of their homeland.
Admission to our program is by application only. Ours is a small program entirely funded by private donations with a very limited number of places to offer each year and therefore highly competitive.
