Improving the education of girls is one of the most lasting ways to increase stability, prosperity, and peace. When girls have the opportunity to further their education, their standard of living rises, and their families have a better chance of escaping the crushing cycle of poverty.

In 1996, the Taliban regime outlawed the education of girls and women. In 2001, after the Taliban were overthrown, the Afghan government, along with the help of international aid agencies, began to slowly rebuild the education system. Before the opening of the Zabuli Education Center, girls in area villages had no way to obtain even the most basic formal education. In a country where the literacy rate for women is less than 15%, only 14% of elementary school-aged girls are in school, and up to 30% of school-aged children support their families, the free education provided by the Zabuli Education Center is invaluable.

316 girls ages 4-14 attend the Zabuli Education Center. Your donation helps cover the cost of a girl's school year: her school supplies, books, lunches, even her uniform and shoes.

Help put a young Afghan girl on a path to possibility! $21 sends a girl to school for a month in Afghanistan; $250 allows one Afghan girl to go to school for the year.


Report from the Field
June 2014, Russell Kniffen - Razia's Ray of Hope Foundation

"In the last year, the Zabuli Education Center has grown considerably. We now have well over 400 students, aged 4-19, in kindergarten through eleventh grade. We recently purchased land to begin developing a post-graduate program for our first graduating class at the end of 2015."


Razia's Ray of Hope Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of women and children in Afghanistan through community-based education. The organization was founded on the belief that education is essential for positive, peaceful change for current and future generations. The foundation strives to provide opportunities to learn and grow in a safe, nurturing environment, empowering girls and women through education and resources so that they may work toward brighter futures — in their own villages and beyond.
