The Taliban deprives women of higher education.
Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, women of all ages have been unable to continue their education. Afghan women pursuing their Ph.D and master’s degrees have had to stop their research. They cannot continue their studies and improve their lives in the current situation.
And they cannot simply leave the country.
Your university can help an Afghan woman complete her studies.
We believe that education is a fundamental human right. Every woman deserves the opportunity to pursue her academic goals. That’s why we partner with universities in the US and Europe to help Afghan women secure formal invitations so they can leave Afghanistan safely and continue their research.
By sponsoring an Afghan woman, you empower her to complete her education.
We give Afghan women a safe path to achieve their academic goals.
We understand it can be difficult for universities to find the right academic fit, but we have a proven track record of helping Afghan women scholars secure scholarships and invitations from universities worldwide.
How it Works
What Afghan Scholars Say
After completing my Ph.D. in chemical engineering, I was struggling with the situation in Afghanistan. This forced me to search for a safe place for continuing my academic work. Receiving an invitation from the Tampere University was a great opportunity to pursue my postdoctoral research in Finland. I believe that a researcher or a scholar does not belong to any specific place or country. They work for the good of the world and they should be free to travel across the globe to enhance their skills and career development while benefiting their society.
Exactly at the time of the government change in Afghanistan, I was preparing for the final round of my doctoral dissertation defense. It was impossible to believe what happened and I was afraid of the vague future. I did not know if I, as a woman, would be able to pursue my job and do any research, or not. I had a world of hope and motivation when I started my doctorate courses. However, the world was upended for me and I was hopeless. Fortunately, I was offered a position as a post doctorate researcher at the Avignon University, which gave me the opportunity to continue my research and career in the IT field.
You can empower an Afghan woman scholar today
Sponsoring an Afghan woman scholar is not only crucial for the individual woman but also for the university that they attend.
