If Afghanistan is to prosper, its youth must be prepared to take on the challenges of a country in transition—economically, socially, politically and culturally. As the drawdown of international forces proceeds, prospects for economic investment in Afghanistan’s natural resources rises. Along with this emerging potential must come the training to meet the opportunity.
Education can bring lasting stability to Afghanistan and to the region. More than 70% of AUAF’s students can’t afford the cost of higher education. Our goal is simple: meet the need for scholarships, especially for women. Your gift, regardless of size, will help shape the future of these deeply dedicated young Afghans – along with their country, and ultimately, ours as well.
