Help us Change these Stats…

An estimated 3.7 million children are out-of-school in Afghanistan – 60% of them are girls.

123 million young people between the ages of 15 and 24 who cannot read or write, 61 percent of them are women.

For every 100 boys enrolled in a primary school in Afghanistan, there are only about 70 girls.

Help us educate, empower and inspire Afghan women through education.

The Yalda Hakim Foundation

Almost two decades since the fall of the Taliban, Afghanistan remains one of the worst places in the world for girls to go to school. Attacks against female students, their teachers, and their schools continue. The deteriorating security situation and the rise of militant groups like the so-called Islamic State mean the first thing that gets traded off is the freedom of girls and women — and their basic human rights. The statistics are startling. There are 3.5 million out of school children in Afghanistan – 85 percent of those are girls.
