Sahar partners with grassroots, Afghan-based organizations to provide access to educational programs for girls in Afghanistan. Our mission is to empower and inspire children and their families to build peaceful, thriving communities. After the Taliban banned formal education for girls above 6th grade, Sahar is finding innovative ways to promote girls’ access to education in Afghanistan. It is now more important than ever to show up for girls’ education in Afghanistan in any capacity possible.


Partnering with locally-based organizations, Sahar provides cost-effective, sustainable, high-quality education opportunities for underserved girls in Afghanistan; promoting peace, stability, and long-term positive impact in this war-weary region. Sahar serves girls in Tajik, Pashtun, Hazara, and Uzbek communities - rural as well as in the urban environment of Mazar-i-Sharif, Kabul, Nangarhar, and Laghman. With formal secondary education being banned for girls in Afghanistan, we are partnering with a non-profit organization in Kabul, Afghanistan to conduct three Kankor (college entrance exam) preparation classes for girls. These classes will enable 300 girls to improve their knowledge in a wide range of school subjects such as Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Physics, Chemistry, biology, and more. Your kind donation will fund these classes and ensure girls’ access to education.
