Give Afghan children a fighting chance

Send 7,500 Afghan children to school!

This month, to mark the one-year anniversary of the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan, we are doubling down on our efforts to bring education to Afghan children. Currently, 5,700 children – primarily girls – are enrolled in CAI-supported community-based schools. We want to help even more children access education. Our goal is to educate 7,500 Afghan children next year. We can’t do this without your help.

Watch this video from our recent event to learn more about the current situation in Afghanistan and the future of girls’ education.

Last month, CAI hosted an intimate conversation with CAI Executive Director Alice Thomas and special guests, Hassina Sherjan and Duniya Stanikzai. The conversation focused on girls’ education in Afghanistan one year after the Taliban takeover. 

During this event, our panelists explained how CAI partners with Afghan organizations to make education possible for girls (and boys) despite the Taliban’s reign of repression and fear. Ms. Sherjan, Ms. Stanikzai, and Ms. Thomas also reflected on the struggles and successes of this past year and shared their vision and hope for girls’ education in Afghanistan moving forward.
